Save the Date: Panel Event @ UAB Oct. 22nd

Please join AWRN for LOCK-DOWN: Reducing Women’s Imprisonment in Alabama at 6:30 on October 22nd at UAB’s Heritage Hall.  The event is being co-sponsored by UAB’s Department of Urban Affairs, Department of Women’s Studies, and Department of Criminal Justice Sciences. 

Panelists Include:

Dr. Kathryn Morgan, Director, UAB Master of Science in Criminal Justice Program

Cheryl Sabel, Independent Consultant, Southern Education Foundation

Leslie Hales, Director, Children’s Aid Society Project Independence Program

Dr. Eddie Lancaster, Correctional Re-entry Coordinator, Alabama Department of Corrections

Jessica Hardy, Director, Office of Women’s Health, Alabama Department of Public Health

Ralph Hendrix, Program Manager, UAB Treatment Alternatives for Safer Communities

Through presentations by issue experts, service providers, and community leaders, LOCK-DOWN will present the public with the unique opportunity to learn more about a range of high risk factors that most often land a woman in prison, as well as obstacles facing her reentry, both of which contribute to growing numbers of women in prison.

LOCK-DOWN will promote community-led education about women’s imprisonment, present actions being taken to sustainably reduce the number of women in prison in Alabama, and will allow AWRN to garner public feedback about imprisonment.

Join us to find out how YOU can help sustainably reduce the number of women in prison in Alabama!
