JUSTICE & RACE
A TIME TO TALK 2019 | Dignity
Dignity in the court. Dignity in re-entry. Dignity for the family.
November 6, 2019, 1 PM- 6 pm
“We cannot be full, evolved human beings until we care about human rights and basic dignity.” - Bryan Stevenson, Equal Justice Initiative
Can you imagine a justice system where everyone is treated with dignity as their case is heard? A system that hears and respects the concerns of their families, and those re-entering society? Let’s talk about it.
The CT Collaborative on Poverty, Criminal Justice and Race joined by representatives from Equal Justice Initiative and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at UCONN to bring a discussion on the importance of dignity in our criminal justice system and exploring what action steps we can take to infuse dignity into the system and return it to the individuals and families affected. Please come to talk, learn and share innovative solutions.
