Join us January 23rd, 2020 at 6:30 PM in the Turner Hall Ballroom, for the final community panel discussion, Rethinking Justice and Incarceration in Wisconsin - “Reentry: Ready or Not"
 
Milwaukee Turners’ program Confronting Mass Incarceration (CMI), in collaboration with Marquette University, UWM, MSOE and MATC, have worked together at organizing this groundbreaking series aimed at moving the community conversation forward on confronting the broken criminal justice system in Wisconsin. As of 2018, the state has more than 23,000 incarcerated individuals, a record high. CMI and its partners seek to confront the systemic and cyclical issue of mass incarceration for the epidemic that it is in this important five-part series. 
 
This is the fifth and final part of the series, with an encouragement of discussion to continue in the future.
 
Each part of the series will be hosted by each of the city’s major higher-ed institutions, with the intentional goal of partnering with academia to help in the complex problem-solving of mass incarceration. The panel on January 23rd, entitled “Reentry: Ready or Not" will be hosted by Conor Williams (Community Advocates) and will include the following panelists:
 
-Kevin Carr (WIDOC Secretary)
-Christine Apple (Chief Psychologist DOC of Milwaukee)
-Sylvester Jackson (Community Organizer - EXPO)
