With an incarceration rate nearly twice as high as neighboring New Jersey, Delaware is an unfortunate leader in America’s trend of mass incarceration. Prison staff shortages compound the lack of crucial programming, making successful re-entry an unlikely outcome in the First State. Bring your lunch and join us as we take a hard look at the pitfalls of our troubled prison system–and how it can be fixed.

Fathi is Director of the American Civil Liberties Union National Prison Project, which brings challenges to conditions of confinement in prisons, jails, and other detention facilities, and works to end the policies that have given the United States the highest incarceration rate in the world.
