Discussion: "The Institutional Violence of Incarceration"

In a state with one of the highest incarceration rates in the world, what impact does this type of institutional violence have on our society? With imprisonment disproportionately affecting minorities, are we creating a new type of slavery? Does incarceration accomplish rehabilitation, or is it simply another means for a prison industrial complex to profit? What does this mean for the wrongly convicted, and what types of nonviolent options do they have to resist the violence of institutionalization?

Journalist Liliana Segura moderates a discussion with Rev. Dorothy Budd and exonerated prisoner Chris Scott to begin an examination of these questions and more.
