A Deeper Look into Solitary Confinement and Mass Incarceration:
Imagining the path to a future centered around real safety and transformative justice
Last night's virtual premiere of The BOX was performed for a global audience of more than 300 people from Puerto Rico, Oaxaca, Australia, Singapore and all over the U.S.
“The acting was superb. I’ve spent the year on Zoom but this was the first time I was totally immersed, totally moved. In awe of all of you for bringing this to me in my home.” ~Jon Sawyer, Executive Director, The Pulitzer Center
“Stunning performance, a gift,” commented one audience member in the chat box. “I’ll think about this forever."
REGISTER NOW FOR OUR FINAL PERFORMANCES, at 11am and 4pm PST tomorrow.
“The writing is sharp and real, it feels like we're in the space with each man. The actors bring these words to life with such honor. I am still without the adequate words to describe how I feel--terribly grateful for this work in the world.” ~Caits Meissner, PEN America's Prison and Justice Writing Program Director
You are also invited to join us on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 04:00pm EDT for a Pulitzer Justice Talk between myself, Sarah Shourd, and formerly incarcerated actor Dameion Brown, moderated by spatial justice activist Liz Ogbu.
This will be a deeper conversation on solitary confinement and mass incarceration, focusing on imagining the path to a future centered around real safety and transformative justice.
