TE07- Liberation Education & Mass Incarceration
Eirik Steinhoff, James Jackson and Kelli Bush
This summer institute is organized by The Evergreen Coalition for Justice Involved Students – a coalition made up of organizations, programs, and key individuals assisting currently or formerly incarcerated youth or adults. The coalition is committed to expanding Evergreen’s prison education work by (re)imagining national and state prison education reform, advancing prison-to-college pathways, providing educational support in correctional facilities, and collaborating on reducing barriers in the transition from prison to college. This summer institute will consist of storytelling, dialogue, and workshops designed to unpack and identify current work, challenges, and ideas to reduce barriers for justice-involved students at Evergreen and in our community. Participants will spend time strategizing about ways to build a sustainable solidarity network, a grounded framework, and robust teaching/learning objectives.
