    "Race, criminalization, and incarceration have long been linked in the United States. This webinar focuses on the role of structural racism in the colossal growth in incarceration rates making the U.S. prison industrial complex the world’s largest. Experts in the field of law and civil rights discuss the roots of mass incarceration and ways to decrease and eliminate society’s reliance on criminalization and punishment. Take-up the mantle of modern-day abolitionism and learn more about how to end these forms of unfreedom today.

    Panelists include Sheila Donaldson Johnson and Sasha Naiman from the Ohio Justice & Policy Center and Rickell Howard Smith, director of the Center for Social Justice at the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio."
