United for Human Dignity: Fighting the Mass Criminalization of our People

Casting our people as criminals is a central tactic in stripping us of our humanity, dignity and peace. Recent victories in drug sentencing, closing private federal prisons, and exposing the harm of immigrant detention are encouraging, but much more remains to be done. In this panel and discussion, we will learn how different communities of color are fighting mass incarceration, mass deportation and out-of-control policing, while moving new demands and solutions that unleash the power and potential of our communities.

Speakers: Liliana Segura, Zachary Norris, paulina helm-hernandez, Breon Wells
