Beyond the Bars 2016: Connecting the Struggles

Friday, March 4, 2016 - Sunday, March 6, 2016

Various Locations


The 6th annual Beyond the Bars Conference, "Connecting the Struggles," aims to connect the many ways in which mass incarceration has impacted individuals, families and communities across the U.S, and beyond, as well as build connections across diverse struggles for social justice.

Albert Einstein stated that imagination is more powerful than knowledge.  Our comrade and sister Angela Davis, challenged us to imagine a world without prison. Join us as we honor the spirit of the struggle – join in solidarity with impacted people, and with academics, activists, practitioners and community members as we continue to connect the struggles to eradicate mass incarceration and to build justice and equity.
