The Murphy Institute is bringing together academics, activists, students, and practitioners to pose crucial questions concerning the criminal justice system and the labor movement’s place and responsibility within it. We are hosting a series of roundtables and discussions, opening with our October 21st forum and culminating in a two-day conference April 28th and 29th. These events are designed to wrestle with the complex and interlocking dynamics of race, class, and law enforcement unionism.
We invite interested individuals to submit paper proposals for the April 28-29 conference. For more information on proposal submission, see here.
Beginning in January 2017, there will be a series of roundtable and discussions leading up to the conference, and we invite interested individuals, organizations and unions to participate in this work.
