WHAT: Police Deputy Superintendent Paul Joyce has repeatedly stated that recent surges of urban violence are directly linked to the prison system. Despite the complexity of this violence, the media will not cover prison matters. In 2002, the Massachusetts Department of Corrections banned media from prisons, allowing the prisons to operate without independent oversight. This dialogue will look at the impact of this policy on the already vulnerable population of prisoners and possibilities for interrupting the cycle of incarceration and violence. Guest includes Conan Harris (StreetSafe Boston), True-See Allah (Nation of Islam), Charles Yancey (Boston City Councilor), Darrin Howell (Mass Uniting), Pastor Paris Cherry, John C. Williams (Brockton) and others.
