Fall Dialogue Day: Crisis at Rikers
November 12, 2021, 12pm-2pm
Our Bi-Annual St. John's Dialogue Day is quickly approaching. This year, we are discussing the humanitarian crisis at Riker's Island and will be hearing from an incredible panel of decarceration activists and public defenders: Darren Mack, Olayemi Olurin, King Downing, and Marty LaFalce.
