With over 2.3 million men and women living behind bars, the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world. How is this growing population of prisoners treated? What rights do incarcerated men and women have and why should we care? Join us to consider these questions and more.

Mariame Kaba, founding director of Project N.I.A., will kick off this discussion.

Café Society is a series of conversations where families, friends, neighbors, and citizens come together to discuss current events and other important political and social issues. By engaging in the meaningful exchange of ideas and perspectives, these conversations enliven the core of democracy and empower the public.
