Race, Labor, & Incarceration (a discussion)

Racialized mass incarceration has received increased attention lately. However, the topic of labor—before, during, and after incarceration—has been less discussed. Critics connect prison labor to a form of modern day slavery, reliant on systemic exploitation. But the struggles of the formerly incarcerated to find meaningful, non-exploitative work is also a major issue in need of examination.

The Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies and the DePaul Labor Education Center invite you to a discussion with experts, advocates and activists engaging the complexities linking race, labor, and mass incarceration.

The panel will include representatives from Workers Center for Racial Justice, Equity and Transformation (E.A.T.) Chicago, Chicago Workers' Collaborative", and SEIU-HCII.

Refreshments will be provided
