As a part of Reentry Awareness Month, TEDxPhiladelphiaSalon will host a salon-style conversation on criminal justice reform and reentry. We’re inviting those previously incarcerated, community members, and experts to explore how policy, criminal justice, poverty, and systemic racism intertwine and impact the lives of incarcerated individuals, their families, and their communities - and what we can all do about it.
6pm: Doors open, pizza, and drinks
6:30pm: Welcome and TED video screening
7pm: Guest speaker: Luis Gonzalez
7:30pm World cafe-style community discussion session
8pm: Discussion harvest
8:30pm: Community networking
This conversation invites community members, activists, the formerly incarcerated, and local leaders to come together to learn, discuss solutions, and mobilize action toward positive change in Greater Philadelphia.
