Session 3: A Case Study: Mass Incarceration

Speaker: James Bell, J.D.
Founder and Executive Director, The W. Haywood Burns Institute


“We live in a country that is addicted to incarceration as a tool for social control. As it stands now justice systems are extremely expensive, do not rehabilitate but in fact make the people that experience them worse and have no evidence-based correlatives to reducing crime.” —James Bell
