2020 Talk Justice Tuesdays Series

Georgia’s criminal legal system is full of cruel and unusual punishments, with practices that include executing people, giving children life sentences, prosecuting children as adults and confining people with serious mental illness to solitary confinement. This advocacy day will provide attendees with information about the current efforts to address these harsh practices and offer specific opportunities for people to advocate for reform to lawmakers. The day will also feature an interactive exhibit that will give attendees a brief glimpse into what it looks like to be confined in isolation.
