Reception immediately following presentation

Join us for a special presentation by nationally renowned expert in the field of criminal justice Dr. Reuben Miller of the University of Chicago.

More people are incarcerated in the U.S. than in any other nation in the western world. But prisons are only part of a vast criminal justice system. Upon release , formerly incarcerated people are confronted with laws, policies and sanctions that impact their ability to find jobs and housing and to fully participate in civic, cultural and family life. This presentation explores what it means to live in this “supervised society” and, more importantly, how we might find our way out.

Dr. Miller’s work has been published in journals of criminology, human rights, law, psychology, sociology, social work, psychology and public health and he is frequently called upon to give media commentary on issues of crime, punishment, race and poverty.  Like Michelle Obama, Dr. Miller is a native of Chicago’s South Side.
