10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
UIC Student Center East
Over 2.3 million people are held in American prisons at any given time, and nearly 400,000 immigrants are deported each year – these are the highest rates of incarceration and deportation in American history. These policies of containment and removal come at an enormous cost to communities, families and taxpayers. And the same forces are at play in both systems – prison privatization, widespread criminalization, and the politics of fear.
This teach-in creates an opportunity for conversation and strategy-sharing among students, community leaders, and especially families impacted by these policies. By educating ourselves about our common stories and struggles, Forced Out will increase the connections among impacted groups and help to create a stronger, more unified voice for policy change across racial and ethnic identities. This teach-in will balance in-depth dialogue with concrete action opportunities – participants will learn about more than a half-dozen current campaigns to unite our communities and advocate for change.Event DetailsThursday April 5th, 10am-2pm
