Event description

Description

Susan Burton is a CNN Heron, a Starbucks "Upstander," a Soros Justice Fellow, a winner of Harvard's Citizen Activist Award, founder of the internationally recognized non-profit A New Way of Life, and someone that Michelle Alexander has compared to Harriet Tubman. She is also one of the millions of American women who have been incarcerated--in her case over 15 years.

In Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women (The New Press; on sale May 9; Hardcover; $25.95), Burton and writer Cari Lynn tell the story of Susan Burton's life, and use it as a lens through which to see the desperate need for criminal justice reform.

Join Ms. Burton along with All of Us or None and Legal Services for Prisoners with Children at a book signing to celebrate Ms. Burton's book, life, and work on Monday June 5th at 6pm, Laurel Book Store, 1423 Broadway, Oakland, CA.
