Let’s Talk: Shifting the Narrative on Criminal Justice
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Facilitated by Penumbra Equity Director Christine Smith.
When we think about criminality, the media ensures that we can’t help but formulate pictures in our heads of who is a criminal and what is a crime. The impact of this unconscious bias is visible in our state’s racial disparities in arrests, convictions, and incarceration — some of the country’s worst. Is it possible to disrupt the perspectives that lead to unfair treatment? Join us for a riveting conversation with leaders focused on reform, abolition, and repair about the impact of bias and how we can all help shift the narrative around crime and incarceration to create a more equitable justice system.
This event begins at 6:00pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.
