*Inside/Outside Organizing to End Mass Incarceration in Indiana*
*Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Bridgwaters Lounge*
*Thursday, April 6, 6 – 7:30pm*
This event will feature a call-in from long-term prisoner and activist Angaza Iman Bahar, at Wabash Valley Correctional Facility (WVCF), who has founded an organization called IDOC Watch inside the prison, in order to put an end abuse and censorship by staff, improve conditions within the prison, and improve
prisoners’ access to resources. He will discuss how the abuses at WVCF lead to IDOC Watch being founded, the role of prisoners’ struggles in social movements, and what people on the outside can do to support IDOC Watch.
Before the call-in there will be a discussion on mass incarceration
facilitated by Fidelia Igwe, a Masters student in African American and African Diaspora Studies at IUB, who is studying mass incarceration and it’s effect on Black communities.
The goal of the event, other than education, is to recruit people to work with the IDOC Watch outside support committees.
