Frontline is doing a documentary, Lost in Detention, about immigration detention tonight 10/18.
hi every one. i'm glad to be part of this affinity group. i'd like to share an essay about the decriminalizing aspect of criminality as portrayed in the filipino film Tirador (Slingshot), the link of which is here http://www.localities.kr/sub_pg/img/8.pdf. thank yo very much.
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.
