Join Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) as we discuss the pipeline to prison process through participation in “Pipeline,” an interactive learning tool developed by MCC. This game provides participants insight into the many flaws in the U.S. criminal justice system that lead to a system of mass incarceration.
Come and learn how to become a restorative justice advocate in areas of injustice and racial disparities in the criminal justice system.
The event will include a time of discussion and light refreshments.
Special thanks to Temple University’s Office of Community Relations for co-hosting this event.
