What Do You Want From Our Prisons?

Crossing Party Lines

Location: Online

The United States has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world, with over a million individuals behind bars in thousands of facilities, yet each of us might have very different ideas of what should be accomplished by imprisoning others.

For many, it’s simply a matter of public safety or using prison time as a deterrent, but are there other reasons for incarceration? Do we have a goal of rehabilitating offenders or are we simply punishing them?

Join us as we explore the role of prisons in America and ask whether they are meeting our expectations.

Join the Crossing Party Lines discussion and have a voice in our Nation’s Conversation! People of all views are welcomed, appreciated, and heard.

Please do your best to arrive at the beginning of the meeting – once we are in breakout rooms and the conversations have started, the meeting doors close to new arrivals. The breakout rooms open (and the doors close) approximately 15 minutes after the hour.
