There are 70 million people living in the U.S. with a criminal conviction. These people are experts of their own experiences and are transforming our understanding of justice and community. Hear from them directly in a series of first hand personal accounts, along with a town hall style conversation moderated by national social and criminal justice advocate, writer, organizational trainer, educator and Ebony Power 100 honoree Marlon Peterson.

Co-presented with Decarcerated Podcast, a production of BePrecedential.

 


Illuminating the arts and life around us, BRIC’s Stoop Series explores music, theater, visual art, media, literature, comedy, and other creative fields, through performances, presentations, participatory activities and dynamic conversations. There’s something different every week!

This spring the Stoop Series includes a special mini-series of How To evenings speaking directly to BRIC’s artist community. These panel discussions bring artists and cultural workers together to share stories about exciting successes and instructive failures in the process of finding resources, collaborating and engaging community around their work.
