Event description

Description

Incorrigibles and the Brooklyn Federal Courthouse invite you to a night of storytelling, discussion, and exploration of the past, present, and future of girls' and women's justice in New York. Join us for this panel event–with formerly incarcerated women, advocates, lawyers, professors, and judges–to learn about and discuss what has been done in the name of justice and protection in New York State, and to imagine what the future of girls’ justice looks like.

This event is free and open to the public and is associated with the exhibition currently on view in the Charles P. Sifton Gallery at the Courthouse, which will be open until February 15th, 2019.

CLE credit is available for this event.

This public event and accompanying exhibition is in partnership with For Freedoms, a collective of artists, institutions, organizations, and individuals across the country who are experimenting with new and innovative pathways to civic participation. For Freedoms was founded by artists in 2016 as a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action in the United States. Inspired by Norman Rockwell’s 1943 paintings of the four universal freedoms articulated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1941—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—For Freedoms uses art to deepen public discussions of civic issues and core values, and to clarify that citizenship in American society is dependent on participation, not ideology.

Funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
