Barbara Arnwine is the president and founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition.
Her work includes women’s rights, immigrant rights, judicial diversity, criminal justice reform, racial profiling, health care disparities and LBGTQI rights.
Participants will learn about the national conversation on racial disparities in our legal system, and how issues of race, ethnicity, and gender identity impact our court systems in Oregon.
Mass Incarceration: The civil rights issue of our time
Mass incarceration is widely agreed to have failed in Oregon and across the country. With 25% of the world’s prisoners, yet only 5% of the world’s population, the US is the most carceral nation on the planet. This outdated approach to crime comes at huge cost to families, communities, and taxpayers. It’s time for a new approach. Join us as we explore how we reached this point and where we go from here, including a look at Oregon’s justice and prison systems with special reference to incarcerated women and how to engage local stakeholders around this issue.
The OJRC is a state-wide Oregon nonprofit. We believe that mass incarceration/criminalization is in fact the greatest civil rights issue of our time and that must all take ownership of it. Individual, communities, and families directly impacted by mass incarceration confront racial bias, discriminatory sentencing practices, state violence, and intentional and overly punitive collateral consequences. Our criminal justice system infringes deeply on the health and equity of our communities and all who reside in Oregon are in one way or another affected by these and other problems created and sustained by this system of mass incarceration.
