Opportunity: Beyond the Bars 2019 — Request for Proposals

January 24, 2019 Opportunities

The 9th Annual Beyond the Bars Conference of the Center for Justice at Columbia University will focus on both the incarceration and criminalization of women and girls themselves as well as of their families and communities. Their focus is inclusive of transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people. The many struggles for justice, equity and safety led by women and girls directly impacted by the criminal legal system will be at the heart of the conference as they create a space to further strengthen and advance change. Beyond the Bars 2019 will continue developing the collaboration between universities and the many ongoing efforts to end mass incarceration.

Sunday March 10, 2019, the fourth day of the Beyond the Bars conference will feature a collection of ninety minute organizing workshops. These sessions are designed to facilitate learning about relevant issues, skill sharing, and the development of tools for advocacy and organizing to actively engage in justice work as it pertains to the impacts of criminalization and incarceration on women and girls.

Proposals are due February 1, 2019
