Introduction to the Institute to End Mass Incarceration (for HLS students)

April 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

This coming summer, HLS will be launching the Institute to End Mass Incarceration, a new research and advocacy center led by Professor Andrew Crespo and the Institute’s Executive Director, Premal Dharia. Relying on a broad definition of mass incarceration, the Institute will identify and pursue advocacy that seeks to radically and dramatically upend the status quo. The Institute’s advocacy work will be anchored to its clinical component, through which it will develop, teach, and practice a nontraditional mode of lawyering that helps to build the power of social movements, including by activating public defenders as systemic change agents. Working alongside and in support of community-led movements, the Institute’s advocacy work aims to help strategize and implement collective action campaigns that catalyze the power of the very people impacted by the penal system. In parallel to its advocacy work, the Institute’s research arm will pursue multiple exciting projects over the coming year, all of which include opportunities for meaningful and substantive student engagement. Come learn about what is in store in the coming academic year, and how you can get involved. Register here: https://harvard.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwtdeCgpzIsE9DsNIjH4_8buAfZ4WHFnnSV
