JustSpeak Report Launch and Events

Tēnā koe Mike,

JustSpeak are releasing our report The Case Against Prisons next week and we’re holding events in Auckland and Wellington to mark the occasion! We’re hoping these events will help fuel conversation about the supposed value prisons provide to us as communities, and the actual versus perceived risks they are supposed to solve.

Each evening will have a panel of experts and a geeky comedian to discuss where we are now, and how we can begin to imagine a future without prisons. So join us, let’s look at the data together, and let’s think about how we can grow safer and healthier communities for all our tamariki.

ps. We will be streaming these events via our Facebook page for those unable to attend in person.
