Latin American Graduate Organization - LAGO says
UPDATE: For those of you traveling from the uptown Tulane campus for this event, there will be a shuttle departing at 5:25pm from in front of the entrance of the Reily Student Recreation Center on Janet Yulman Way, and later departing from Ashé promptly at 9:00 to return back uptown. Seats on the shuttle are first come first serve.

Part of LAGO's annual graduate conference, "Organizing and Action: Detention Centers and the Prison Industrial Complex" is an evening of dialogue that brings together organizers, activists, educators, and artists to speak about the problem of mass incarceration as it affects different communities in New Orleans.

With discussion from the school-to-prison pipeline to immigrant detention and deportation, participants will range from local poets and performers José Torres-Tama and A Scribe Called Quess? to a clip of filmmaker Andrés Feliciano's Paper City - Stop the School to Prison Pipeline, as well as representatives from New Orleans Workers' Center for Racial Justice, Voice of the Ex-Offender (VOTE), Nola to Angola, the New Orleans Public Defender’s Office, and JCFA, among others.

Speaking across the divide between Black, White and Latinx experiences, through film screening, panel discussion, and performance, participants will highlight how the issue affects the unique communities they serve, share personal narratives, and discuss tools for addressing issues of mass incarceration.

This event is free and open to the public. The event will be catered by Congreso Cubano.
