From the host:

Justice involved women and girls enter and exist in the criminal justice system with their whole beings. They bring life experiences rooted in identity-- race, class, ability, sexuality and more. How are we as service providers meeting the needs of women and girls at the margins? How do our institutions and programs account for these identities? This conference will begin to shed light on the specific traits, strengths and needs of women and girls at the margins. We will explore marginality and intersectionality through both a systems and personal lens. Our event will be emceed by the amazing Dr. Joi Lewis of Joi Unlimited.
