LECTURE | Criminal Justice Seminar 

As involved as we may think we are in government, the general public remains pretty happily hands-off when it comes to the justice system. Participation in a jury is far more rare than voting, and many of us seem content to watch the news but look away from the fates of the incarcerated masses. On Saturday, September 27, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., a community-building event with a focus on the criminal justice system will be held at the Frederick Douglas Resource Center (36 King Street).

Hear from local city judge candidate Leticia Astacio, local attorneys, other legal professionals, activists, and community leaders and members about legal issues, re-entry after incarceration, incarcerated family members, drug policy, advocating for political prisoners, felony discrimination, healing after violence, and representing the unfavorable defendant.

The event will also feature a performance by NYC-based rapper Stellar Life, the premiere of documentary films, and a cultural art show by local artists Markas Kates, Johnnie Lee Smith, Pooker Astacio, Brian McCullough, and Lujar. The event is free and open to the public. For more information call 497-6139 or visit fdrc-rochester.com.
