February 9, 6-7 PM - Toward Healing, Justice, and Community Transformation: Workshop for the Community with Kempis Songster

Examine and discuss the true costs of incarceration on families and communities. Locking up millions of people has had deep, devestating concequences and fails to deliver justice and safety for our communities. Facilitated by Kempis Songster, formerly incarcerated juvenile lifer, the community will engage in discussion about facing fears and barriers that hinder hope and healing after violence and victimization and reimagine justice to build a shared vision for individual and community safety that does not rely on imprisonment.
