Criminalization: Mass Incarceration, Deportation, and Surveillance Today

Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific

The United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the entire world – and who ends up detained has a lot more to do with race, sexual orientation and gender identity, mental illness, immigration status, and poverty than what they are detained for. We see criminalization in action when undocumented immigrants receive felony criminal convictions for re-entering the country after deportation, when police officers have quotas to meet for a number of arrests and fines and go into communities of color to meet those quotas, and when Muslims nationally live under enhanced surveillance in the name of “counter-terrorism.”

Speakers Include:
• Jacinta Gonzalez, Field Director, Mijente (Phoenix, AZ)
• Fatema Ahmad, Deputy Director, Muslim Justice League (Boston, MA)
• Jamila Hammami, Executive Director, Queer Detainee Empowerment Project (NYC, NY)
• Ruth Idakula, Co-Director of Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal / Dignity in Schools Coordinating Committee Member (New Orleans, LA)
