A Harrisburg Perspective on Mass Incarceration

Join us on Wednesday, June 21st at 7:30 pm as we are honored to host a conversation with St. Senator Daylin Leach regarding the issue of mass incarceration, the criminal justice system and the issues related to the criminal justice system and race.

Sen. Leach is the Minority Chair of the Judiciary Committee of the Pennsylvania Senate and has been active in these issues. His legislation began the conversation of legalizing medical marijuana and he has pushed to review the laws as they relate to drug sentencing as they disproportionally impact minority communities.

Join us for what should a fascinating conversation!
