Together to End Solitary Confinement
We will begin with a vigil in the Worship room to remember those suffering the torture of solitary confinement. Then we will move into the Art Gallery to view the TED Talk, “What a world without prisons could look like” by architect, Deanna Van Buren. She designs restorative justice centers that, instead of taking the punitive approach used by a system focused on mass incarceration, treat crime as a breach of relationships, and justice as a process where all stakeholders come together to repair that breach. After viewing the video, we will form circles to design our own restorative justice centers.
