Incarceration and Inequality

NYU Alumni

Date: Sep 16th

The United States’ 400-year history of racial injustice continues to produce profound economic inequalities today. A new Brennan Center report shows how involvement with the criminal justice system lowers individuals’ earnings — a pattern that contributes to racial and economic disparities, and casts doubt on whether second chances are possible for affected individuals. Please join us on September 16 for a discussion on why ending mass incarceration is both a moral and economic imperative and a vital step toward closing the racial wealth gap. Experts from the Brennan Center’s Justice Program will be joined by Wes Moore, a New York Times bestselling author and the CEO of Robin Hood.
