Dr. Reuben Miller to speak on Jan. 15 at the Touro University California, located on 1557 Azuar Drive in Vallejo

Dr. Reuben Miller

A special presentation, “Race, Punishment & the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration: The Im­pact of Crime Control, Policies & Practice on the Lives of Poor American Families” will be pre­sented on 4:30 p.m., on Tuesday, January 15 at the Touro Univer­sity California, located on 1557 Azuar Drive in Vallejo, CA. The presentation will be at the Land­er Hall Room B 165.

The speaker will be Dr. Reu­ben Miller of the University of Chicago, a nationally renowned expert in the field of criminal justice. Reception will immedi­ately follow the presentation.

More people are incarcerated in the U.S. than in any other na­tion in the Western world. But prisons are only part of a vast criminal justice system. Upon release, formerly incarcerated people are confronted with laws, policies and sanctions that im­pact their ability to find jobs and housing, and to fully participate in civic, cultural and family life. This presentation explores what it means to live in this “super­vised society” and, more impor­tantly, how we might find our way out.

Dr. Miller’s work has been published in journals of crimi­nology, human rights, law, psy­chology, sociology, social work, psychology and public health and he is frequently called upon to give media commentary on issues of crime, punishment, race and poverty.

Like former First Lady Mi­chelle Obama, Dr. Miller is a native of Chicago’s South Side. Seats are limited. The event is free & open to the pub­lic with prior registration. Register at EVENTBRITE! or visit Touro University California.
