Join PROOF on Saturday, November 7th at the United Nations International School (UNIS) for a symposium on U.S. mass incarceration and the criminal justice system.
This program is the culmination of Picture Justice, a two-week human rights photojournalism program facilitated by educators from PROOF and UNIS. Guided by professional photojournalists, New York City high school students created a moving photo exhibit, Broken?, which features the stories and images of formerly incarcerated individuals. Symposium attendees will have the opportunity to view the exhibit and a powerful new theater performance devised by UNIS students.
The symposium will feature workshops guided by leaders in the social justice community, and will explore topics such as stop and frisk, youth incarceration, and the impact on families and children. The program features keynote speaker Hernan Carvente, who will discuss his role as program analyst for Vera's Center on Youth Justice, and his efforts to advance criminal justice reform.
