Frontline is doing a documentary, Lost in Detention, about immigration detention tonight 10/18.
hi Stephen, good to know that MacArthur is getting involved in this discussion. Perhaps this is a good time to announce a major conference on prison/penal abolition at Ottawa in June 2014. I am part of that organizing committee (ICOPA) and will be bringing flyers to Atlanta.
The MacArthur Foundation, where I work, is starting to think about mass incarceration and how philanthropy can tackle this. Review of the literature and of the landscape has begun and is ongoing. A systems reform approach by MacArthur is likely, but no action has been taken yet. A research network on the punishment paradigm is also likely in 2014. But that is a separate, though complementary, track from the work of concrete reform. Stay tuned. I look forward to discussing with you in Atlanta.
Hi Grace, thanks for sharing news about the film. I seem to be more in sync with the film's message than that of the reviewer though. Maybe because I read Parenti's Lockdown America, Davis' Abolition Democracy, and Alexander, The New Jim Crow?
Here is a review of Jarecki's film _The House I Live In_, written by a colleague of mine from Bard Prison Initiative. http://www.hannaharendtcenter.org/?p=9068
Hello all, have you all seen Eugene Jarecki's new documentary, _The House I Live In_?
hi, hope to meet you all at the Atlanta conference. Thanks, Brady, for your leadership.
I am particularly interested in decarceration and abolition.
