Transforming Corrections – A Screening and Dialogue

December 5, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

Explore the transformative potential of criminal justice reform in a thought-provoking event featuring the screening of the documentary “Cutline – Transforming Corrections: Learning from Norway,” and dialogue with experts, on December 5th at the Konover Auditorium.

Reimagine justice at an insightful event that will challenge your perspective on criminal justice reform. Join us for “Transforming Corrections: Learning from Norway” on December 5th from 4 pm – 6 pm at the Konover Auditorium.

The evening will begin with a screening of the documentary “Cutline: Transforming Corrections,” which follows Connecticut leaders as they explore Norway’s progressive prison system. Connecticut Public Television’s Cutline follows the Accountability Project which explores how a group of Connecticut thought leaders and policymakers are trying to transform corrections across the state.

Hear from incarcerated individuals, policymakers, and Norwegians about what is and what is not working. Discover how Norway’s focus on rehabilitation and redemption has transformed its corrections system and reduced recidivism. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with guest scholars, activists, and experts at the forefront of enacting change here in Connecticut. Ask questions and gain powerful insights from those directly involved in reshaping our local criminal justice policies.

This is a unique chance to rethink incarceration, examine policy gaps, and ignite meaningful debate on building a more just and humane system right here in our communities. Come curious, with an open mind, and a willingness to be part of solutions.

Register now and join us as we reimagine justice together.

This event is hosted by the Democracy and Dialogues Initiative, the Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy, and the Connecticut/Baden-Württemberg Human Rights Research Consortium.
