Barred II: True Stories About Incarceration
May 16th from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us on May 16th for our last show of the season! We are reuniting with decARcerate to produce a second show on true stories of incarceration. Last year, this show was a moving and powerful experience and we expect nothing less this year.
DecARcerate is a grassroots prison reform coalition in Central Arkansas that strives to eliminate mass incarceration. Their programs seek to change policy around the death penalty, racial disparities, and the juvenile justice system. Morgan Leyenberger, co-chair of decARcerate, says that, “Advocacy around the prison system is often reserved for those who are directly affected by it. We feel it’s important, though, for residents to know more about and feel empowered to weigh in on issues surrounding the justice system in their own community.”
