The Asian-Pacific American Law Student Association will lead a lecture and Q&A discussion about alternatives to incarceration, addressing the root causes of crime and alternate ways of pursuing justice.

“The prison therefore functions ideologically as an abstract site into which undersirables are deposited, relieving us of the responsibility of thinking about the real issues afflicting those communities from which prisoners are drawn in such disproportionate numbers… it relieves us of the responsibility of seriously engaging with the problems of our society, especially those produced by racism and, increasingly, global capitalism.” – Angela Davis/”Are Prisons Obsolete”
