Session Submission Type: Special Event
This interactive session brings together scholars, activists, community partners, and the formerly incarcerated to consider the ways in which our collective understanding about literacy, critical discourse, and restorative justice can influence criminal justice reform.
Conference attendees are invited to be in conversation with presenters who will offer examples of practices, in schools and in prisons, designed to interrupt the flow of young people and adults into carceral custody, and to help alter the lived experiences of those who are currently incarcerated. The session will offer opportunities for participants to engage in collective exploration and generative reflection.
