Vera Institute’s Best Of: Conversations on Justice Reform

Join criminal justice reform organization, Vera Institute of Justice, for an evening of performances, conversations, and awards honoring justice reform-related books, films, podcast, and thought-leaders. This event – with special guests from the world of entertainment, activism, and pop culture – will bring students and community members together to hear about the groundswell of criminal justice and immigration reform efforts that are happening across the country. We'll focus on key accomplishments in a year of incredible national movement-making, from work to expand access to college education for people who are incarcerated (UIowa is a partner for Vera in this effort) to the work to restore voting rights and amplify the power of prosecutors to reform our broken justice system. Food and drinks will be provided. You don't want to miss it!
