Panel discussion of prisons in the U.S.

Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave., Oakland
phone: 510 595-7417, web: http://www.tifcss.org

The panel will consider impact of incarceration on the society from three distinct viewpoints:

As an activist for access to health care by poor people and communities of color Shawnna Demmons will discuss prisons as a public health issue.

Drawing on her experience as a child of an incarcerated parent and a decade of work advocating for the rights of children whose parent(s) are in prison and jail, early childhood educator Sydney Gurewitz Clemens will talk about ways the community can support the children whose lives have been uprooted, disconnected, confused and injured in most cases by their relative's involvement with the criminal justice system.

Urszula Wislanka will contribute what she learned from the California women prisoners' organizing themselves over the last 12 years to fight against de-humanization of prisoners.

A free and full discussion will follow.
