Creating A Culture of Consent: Orange is the New Jim Crow

Time: Monday, November 25, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM PST

Location: College Nine and College Ten Recreation Lounge

This event will illuminate the multiple harms that incarcerated women and gender variant people face behind bars, as well as their dynamic resistance to everyday systemic control. We will highlight the absence of informed consent in prison and refuse to let women prisoners remain unseen and unheard. This discussion will encourage participants to think deeply and critically about our own responsibility to redesign a social landscape in which coercion and confinement--and especially punishment for profit--will be replaced with alternatives that make our bodies and communities truly safe.

Intended Audience:

UCSC and Santa Cruz Community
