While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world's population, it houses around 22 percent of the world's prisoners – the highest percentage in the world. Join Net Impact and the BMA as we host Sharun Goodwin, Assistant Commissioner of the NYC Department of Probation, to learn more about the effects of mass incarceration on society in the US and her in the NYC Dept. of Probation. This is a great opportunity for the Kellogg community to continue to learn and understand more about the challenges and implications of her role and it’s effects on changing the effects of mass incarceration. Lunch will be provided!
