"Barriers to Sustainability in Poor Marginalized Communities in the United States: The Criminal Justice, the Prison-Industrial Complex and Foster Care Systems"
Co-Facilitators: SFIS Professor Nalini Chhetri and PhD Candidate Muriel Adams
Date: Tuesday, April 28, 2020
Time: 12 - 1 p.m.
Description: In the United States of America, 2.2 million people are incarcerated in public and private facilities and over 700,000 are released yearly back to their home communities. Almost half are rearrested within a year. These problems have been excluded from mainstream sustainability narratives, despite their serious implications for sustainability. Join co-authors Nalini Chhetri and Muriel Adams as we learn how they address how the criminal justice, prison-industrial complex and foster care systems negatively impact these communities and families.
