Diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Ford School
Danielle Sered will speak about her experience directing Common Justice, a program of the Vera Institute of Justice that develops and advances solutions to violence that transform the lives of those harmed and foster racial equity without relying on incarceration.
Dr. Gottschalk is a professor of political science at the University of Pennsylvania specializing in American criminal justice politics. In her presentation, she will examine why the carceral state, with its growing number of outcasts, remains so tenacious in the United States.

The United States is pursuing countermeasures against recidivism and mass-incarceration. One of ways to mitigate those problems is Restorative Justice.
Based on the 13 months she spent in the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut on money laundering charges, Piper Kerman’s memoir, Orange is the New Black, raises provocative questions about the state of criminal justice in America, and how incarceration affects the individual and communities throughout the nation.
