Beyond the Bars LA 2022 Conference
January 15 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm PSTFree
About this event
Beyond the Bars Los Angeles (BTB-LA) is a convening of system-impacted people, scholars, activists, educators, policymakers, and artists engaged in the international decarceration movement. Organized by BTB-LA Fellows — system-impacted people and community partners — in collaboration with university students and faculty. The conference brings together a diverse range of allies, artists, activists, advocates, and academics to engage in global initiatives aimed at ending incarceration.
Beyond the Bars has been running for the past 10 years at Columbia University’s Center for Justice and more recently, through the Prison Education Program at UCLA. UCLA’s Prison Education Program mission is to make postsecondary education accessible to women and young people who are currently incarcerated, and to bring UCLA faculty and students to learn alongside them, thereby challenging bias, discrimination, and injustice in a shared and collaborative learning experience.
Schedule and zoom links will be sent shortly before the conference dates. Be on the lookout!
