Baz Dreisinger: Rethinking The Global Prison System

Town Hall Seattle says
The United States has the highest prison rates in the world and as of this summer, Washington’s 12 prisons were at capacity. This reliance on the prison system set an example for the rest of the world making it “America’s most far-reaching global export.” In Incarceration Nations, Dreisinger documents the prisons, inmates, and civilian communities who are negatively affected by this cyclical imprisonment. She’ll share examples from South Africa, Thailand, and“the world’s most humane” prison in Norway to highlight the hidden impacts of this system. Dreisinger, the founder of the Prison-to-College Pipeline, will also offer advice on reevaluating how we put others behind bars and ways to make the process better for everyone involved.
