Thu, April 20, 2017, 12:00 PM – 1:15 PM EDT
This lunch, originally scheduled on January 24th, was rescheduled because of snow. If you registered for the January date, please register again!
JOIN US at the Greater Burlington Women's Forum Thursday April 20 for Re-imagining Justice for Women.
In the last 30 years, the number of women prisoners in Vermont grew at a rate more than three times that of male prisoners. And when women are incarcerated, children are disproportionately affected as well. Join us for a panel discussion about how Vermont's criminal justice system impacts women, and hear some of the efforts underway to support justice-involved women and reduce unnecessary and counterproductive incarceration. Learn about "For the Sake of the Children," the campaign to De-carcerate Vermont, and Mercy Connections' mentoring program--and what you can do to help.
Suzi Wizowaty, Director of Vermonters for Criminal Justice Reform
Moderated by Carina Driscoll, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Vermont Woodworking School
The program will last until 1:15pm and close with announcements of interest. Contois Auditorium is available for another 15 minutes of networking. Bring a lunch, listen, learn, share, and network with women in our community.
Please register to save your seat (no need to print out a ticket, though!).
