Did you know we have the highest incarceration rate in the world?  Ever wonder how we got here?  Would you like to learn more about why people were protesting, and what defunding the police actually means?  Join GRC sociology professor Kate Lawson as we look at some of the historical policies and practices that have shaped our current criminal justice system, and how we can help push for a more equitable future.
