Professor Christian Davenport will moderate the conversation.
The rate of recidivism in the United States is over 50% and roughly 25% of the world's inmates are incarcerated in the U.S., which has exceeded U.S. incarceration capacity. The United States is pursuing countermeasures against recidivism and mass-incarceration. One of ways to mitigate those problems is Restorative Justice.
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.
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.
