Critical Conversation: Crime, Punishment & Alternative Forms of Justice
June 05 at 7pm
TIFA’s most provocative conversation series returns, exploring thrilling new themes for MOTIVE audiences. Each day of the Festival, authors and experts will come together to examine a new facet of the culture and politics that shape the world around us and the books we read.
Enthralling stories of crime and injustice are devastating realities for many people in Canada experiencing incarceration. This is especially true for the many people from marginalized communities who disproportionately represent the prison population. The Canadian prison system offers a shocking reflection of the social and economic inequalities that underpin Canadian society, making us wonder how can we meaningfully address these inequalities, and develop approaches to administering true justice?
Miriam Henry, Assistant Crown Attorney, Toronto Northwest Justice Centre, a new and innovative court model that co-locates justice, social, health and education services for justice-involved youth; The Honourable Justice Mary L. Hogan; and Jonathan Rudin, Program Director, Aboriginal Legal Service will discuss this topic with Nahlah Ayed (CBC IDEAS).
