National Lawyer's Guild Week Against Mass Incarceration

Nicole Solomon Lindahl hosts.  Beginning February 26, 2018, the National Lawyer's Guild sponsored its annual "Week Against Mass Incarceration," in which law school chapters host a week of events focused on the “dismantling and abolition of all prisons and of all aspects of systems and institutions that support, condone, create, fill, or protect prisons.”  At the Lewis & Clark Law School, the NLG chapter featured events focused on solitary confinement, "Crimmigration" - the intersection of incarceration and immigration detention, and prison abolition.  In this show, we hear from event organizers and featured speakers about why learning from people with direct experience with the criminal justice system is particularly important for law students, how solitary confinement impacts individuals in Oregon's adult and juvenile prisons, and how abolitionist frameworks can help us to envision a world that is safe, livable, and just.
