What does a truly just society look like? How does it feel? How do we get there?
Join co-hosts Illinois Humanities and the Galesburg Civic Art Center for a screening of the Galesburg edition of the Visions of Justice video series, immediately followed by a facilitated community dialogue around mass incarceration and its impacts on Galesburg. In our screening of Visions of Justice: Galesburg, we’ll hear from four contributors who are currently serving long-term sentences at Hill Correctional Center about their personal experiences and perspectives on the carceral system.
