Berkeley Underground Scholars: From Incarceration to Education
Presentation | February 4 | 6-8 p.m. | Free Speech Movement Cafe (Moffitt Library)
The Berkeley Undergrounds Scholars (BUS) is a grassroots program for UC Berkeley students who have been directly impacted by the Prison Industrial Complex, including formerly incarcerated people or those with incarcerated family members.
Please join us for a discussion of the program and its aim to shift the School-to-Prison pipeline to a Prison-to-School pipeline using higher education as an alternative to incarceration.
There will be a screening of the documentary From Incarceration to Education and remarks by filmmaker Skylar Economy. Also presenting will be: Azadeh Zohrabi (BUS Director), David Harding (Professor, Department of Sociology), along with scholars Joshua Mason, Daniela Medina, and Leneka Pendergrass.
