The Petey Greene Program invites you to register for the second conversation of the Spring 2022 Justice Education Series titled Educational Access for Incarcerated Women: Challenges and Opportunities on Thursday, April 7, 2022, @ 6 pmEST.
During this webinar you will learn from Romarilyn Ralston (@RomarilynR), Executive Director of College and Community Fellowship (@ccf_ny), Alexa Garza and, Rabia Qutab, Justice Fellows for the Education Trust (@Edtrust), and moderator Kimberly Haven, Policy Lead for From Prison Cells to PhDs, about what’s needed to increase educational access for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women.
The Petey Greene Program envisions a world in which all incarcerated people have access to high-quality academic programs. This is why members of The Petey Greene Program is concerned that incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women are often denied access to quality vocational and educational programs that assist them and their families in living sustainable lives post-incarceration. Panelists will discuss why, in Kimberly Haven’s words, women and girls remain “correctional afterthoughts” although incarceration rates for women and girls have increased sevenfold since the early 1980s.
They will also point us to the gender-focused and gender-informed research priorities, policies, initiatives, perspectives, and practices necessary to increase educational programming for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and girls.
Panelist and organization bios can be found here.
