Leadership St. Tammany Alumni Foundation: Forum on Mass Incarceration in the Parish

The New Jim Crow Task Force is pleased to support the forum on mass incarceration presented by the Leadership St. Tammany Foundation scheduled for October 7th. This forum represents the second such forum to be held in St. Tammany this year. In January, we facilitated "Safe and Fair Louisiana" with the ACLU, LA Sentencing Commission, and the Pelican Institute. We feel that the tide is changing and that it is very important that you show your support for this issue by attending the October 7th forum. See the details below.

Unlocking the Keys to High Incarceration Rates and Their Impact in St. Tammany Parish
Where is the highest incarceration rate in the world? You might guess Russia, Iran, or North Korea. Shockingly, it is right here in Louisiana and specifically St. Tammany Parish. Join fellow alumni, as we explore why our parish has the highest incarceration rate in the world: its costs, human impacts, and possible solutions.
