Mass Incarceration and How Criminal Justice Authorities Can Help End It
During these three weeks we will examine the role of criminal justice authorities, such as prosecutors, judges, police, parole board and legislators in setting up policies and practices that promote a “tough on crime” culture that promotes incarceration and increases recidivism. We welcome all community members interested in understanding how the criminal justice system could change for the better to provide healing, equity and reduction in incarceration. Carolyn Madden has an MA in Philosophy, Graduate Center, NY and a JD from Wayne State University. She is a member of Restorative Justice of Washtenaw County Jail and a volunteer at the Women’s Huron Valley Incarceration facility. Kathie Gourlay has an MBA from the University of Michigan, is a retired Washtenaw Community College instructor, and is passionate about criminal justice reform. She finds restorative justice to be an improved way to respond to criminal acts, as compared to the retributive approach. Instructors: Carolyn Madden & Kathie Gourlay
