FEATURED SPEAKER:
"Race to Incarcerate: The Causes and Consequences of Mass Incarceration"


Marc Mauer
Marc Mauer
Executive Director of The Sentencing Project (Washington, D.C.); author of Race to Incarcerate and Invisible Punishment: The Collateral Consequences of Mass Imprisonment

MASS INCARCERATION

THE UNITED STATES IS THE WORLD’S LEADING JAILER
Our country has 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of its prisoners.

OUR RATE OF INCARCERATION IS HISTORIC
2.2 million Americans are incarcerated – an increase of 500% over the last 40 years.

WE IMPRISON DISPROPORTIONATELY
1 out of every 3 African-American males born today and 1 out of every 6 Latino males are likely to be incarcerated during their lifetimes.  Most prisoners are poor, undereducated, and underemployed.

THE COSTS ARE STAGGERING
The correctional system in America is an $80 billion enterprise.  The cost to our communities and individual lives is incalculable.

MASS INCARCERATION HAS NOT MADE US SAFER
Mass incarceration is the result of changes in policy, not an increase in crime.  In recent years, a number of states have successfully reduced incarceration while maintaining reductions in crime.

AND IN RHODE ISLANDWE ALSO HAVE MASS PROBATION
Over 24,000 of our citizens are on probation–--the fourth highest probation rate in the country – making it harder for them to educate themselves, obtain jobs, and acquire the full benefits of citizenship.  We also have one of the highest cost-per-offender rates in the United States.

MOVING TOWARD SOLUTIONS
The symposium will be a forum for collective conversation among those who care deeply about our criminal justice system. We will work together to examine the problems of mass incarceration and mass probation and move forward toward solutions.

Special thanks to:
Dean Michael J. Yelnosky, Roger Williams University School of Law
Hon. Judith C. Savage, Associate Justice, Rhode Island Superior Court (ret.); Distinguished Jurist in Residence, Roger Williams University School of Law (Advisor to Roger Williams University School of Law Symposium Planning Committee)
