The United Youth Movement along side with the “Black Male Initiative” and “Students Against Mass Male Incarceration” are hosting an informative event to educate students on the Prison Industrial-Complex and the detrimental affects on the African-American community. They will cover political influences on the prison system and socio-economic factors of being a convicted felon, including it impacts on the African-American’s family life. Furthermore, we will have a guest speaker, Nina Graves from the Law Enforcement Against Prohibition organization (LEAP) to discuss about the war on drugs and different approaches on how to rehabilitate and uplift convicts.
