Institutional Racism and Our Prisons
America’s injustices within systems like education, housing, health care, employment, drug policies and policing all contribute to mass incarceration, arguably the most potent, wide-reaching and damaging example of institutional racism. Discrimination, neglect, and harmful policies often get camouflaged for white people, especially when they work to our advantage, and we don’t realize how these systems affect the poor and people of color. This round table discussion will center around these systems, our awareness and complicity and the need for humility and compassion. Judy Wenzel taught high school completion classes at the federal prison in Milan for 25 years.
