Criminal Justice Dialogue All Campus

On March 20th, a community dialogue around the criminal justice system will spark change on a local level. Service providers, students, and the currently and formerly incarcerated have come together to create this transformative event. March 20th-24th at Humboldt State University, nationally recognized criminal justice organizations, (Prisoners with Children, Project What, Prison University Project, Homeboy Industries, and more), will present their work to Humboldt County stakeholders. The event will be broken up into themes surrounding: the effects of incarceration on families, barriers to employment and housing, the role of gender and race in the criminal justice system, the importance of education, and reentry success stories. It will end with a roundtable discussion on improving reentry services in Humboldt County.

The community Criminal Justice Dialogue is a yearly event that is aimed at addressing the barriers to reintegration as well as showcasing the need for further support services for those impacted by incarceration. These events are also a platform for not only the development of services, but also an opportunity to discuss the importance of addressing stigma, a harmful invisible barrier that perpetuates punishments past the point of incarceration.
