Pre-TI Dialogue #1: Our Children, Our Prisons: Moving Young People from Incarceration to Education

September 12, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In the United States each year, approximately 2,570 children as young as 13 are sentenced to juvenile life without parole. Nearly 3 million children have an incarcerated parent, the majority from communities of color. To cast light on this national issue, Trinity Wall Street will host a forum on the impact of incarceration on young people on Saturday, September 12th at 10 A.M. at Trinity Church (Broadway at Wall Street in Lower Manhattan). First in a series of dialogues leading up to the January 2016 Trinity Institute Conference, “Listen for Change: Sacred Conversations for Racial Justice,” this event will bring together nationally recognized experts and New York-based activists to clarify the issues, spark discussion, and offer practical advice on how to make a difference.

Bryan Stevenson, author of “Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption,” will deliver the keynote address. Panel speakers will include Divine Pryor, Executive Director of the Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions; Judith Kaye, former Chief Judge of New York City; the Rev. Vivian Nixon, Executive Director of College and Community Fellowship; and Diana Ortiz, Associate Director of Exodus Transitional Community.

This free event will provide lunch, but RSVP required: institute@trinitywallstreet.org.

This event will be webcast and available on-demand.
