Policed Bodies: A Discussion Across Identities

In variations of the county, women a shackled by their ankles, handcuffed by their wrists and forced to wear a belly restraint across their stomach. We view this inhumane act as another form of systematic control, for we are living in a system that’s determined to cut down the most marginalized and under-resourced parts of our communities.

SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW, GSU’s BlackOUT, Lambda Legal, and 9to5 will be hosting a event at GSU to bring awareness and discuss issues surrounding the shackling of incarcerated women and the intersecting oppression among race, class, and gender, and sexual orientation.

WHEN: FEB 13TH
WHERE: SINCLAIRE SUITE, 2nd FLOOR, STUDENT CENTER
TIME: 7:00PM

The conversation begins promptly at 7:0pm.

If your organization is interested in speaking at this event, please contact SPARK Organizer, Bianca Campbell at bianca@sparkrj.org.
