6:30pm - 8:30pm    |    Vanderbilt Hall Rooom 216, 40 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012

Please join us for a conversation centering the experiences of people intimately familiar with the United States criminal legal system. Taking a human rights-based approach, this event rests on the premise that bearing witness to the harms caused by the racism, inequality, and unfairness of this system is a necessary prerequisite to addressing them.

The event will feature a series of short film interviews with people directly touched by the system; a moderated conversation with some of the film’s interviewees; and an audience Q & A.

Ismael Nazario
Featured Witness, formerly incarcerated as a teenager

Francis Greenburger
Featured Witness, father of an incarcerated son

Amanda David
Attorney, Federal Defenders of New York

Moderated by

Vincent Southerland
Executive Director, Center on Race, Inequality and the Law

Light refreshments will be served.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Marshall Project and NYU School of Law’s Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law.

UPDATE: Judge Eduardo Padró will replace Ismael Nazario on the panel and Neil Barsky, Founder and Chairman of the Marshall Project will introduce the event.
