“Breaking Down Walls: Intersections of Mass Incarceration”- Save the Date: March 16, 2013; U. Penn School of Social Policy and Practice

The Goldring Reentry Initiative (GRI) would like to invite you to our first annual community conversation on Saturday, March 16th, 2013. The event, called Breaking Down Walls: Intersections of Mass Incarceration and its Implications, aims to create a platform for innovative responses to criminal justice issues in Philadelphia. This free day-long event will feature panel discussions that humanize the experience of mass incarceration, deconstruct social problems connected to the criminal justice system, and create action plans to address criminal justice issues within Philadelphia. (See attachment.)

The GRI is based out of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice, and works to break the recidivism cycle for those leaving the Philadelphia Prison System. Through a continuum-of-care model, GRI students support individuals as they transition out of jail and into the community.
