2020 Parren J. Mitchell Symposium
The Continuity of Criminalization: From Schools to Streets to Prisons
Unequal Treatment & Enforcement
Tuesday, November 10, 2020, 12:30pm-1:45pm
Panelists: Drs. Perla M. Guerrero, Saher Selod, and Joseph Richardson
Moderated by: Dr. Robert Koulish
Note: This year's symposium, postponed from the spring, will feature a series of virtual panels.
This session will explore how punitive action is unequally applied across groups at both the institutional and individual levels. Moreover, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the civil uprisings sparked by ongoing anti-Black racism, many of these experiences are heightened and highlighted in new ways. In this session, panelists will discuss various manifestations of criminalization and how they differentially affect particular racialized groups in society.
