Presented by the Inside-Out Prison Exchange, a Center for Community and Global Health Community Partner, this discussion series consider the ways that justice is instrumental to healing.
What We Can Learn from the T.V. Series “Philly D.A.”
The TV series “Philly D.A” is a riveting, up-close look at Larry Krasner, Philadelphia’s progressive District Attorney (who will be joining us for the event) and his recent election, with all of the requisite complexity and political drama that ensues.
We will watch the first episode together, followed by an in-depth conversation with a fascinating panel (see below) that will be focused on the possibilities and challenges of making change. This event provides a stepping-off point for us all, wherever we are located, to think about how we might reimagine justice. Though the series takes place in Philadelphia, it can be regarded as a harbinger of wider social change writ large.
A special aspect of this series is that Ted Passon, one of its co-creators and directors, took an Inside-Out course back in the early 2000s. Please mark your calendar and share this information with others.
