Diversity Week: Correcting “Corrections”: Addressing sexual, religious, and racial discrimination facing women in prison

Join MLSA and MESALSA for a panel highlighting the experiences of incarcerated women and the unique impact of incarceration on women from ethnic and religious minorities. We will hear from Marwa Elbially, the attorney representing Aafia Siddiqui. Aafia Siddiqui is a Pakistani-Muslim woman currently unjustly held in FMC Carswell, a federal prison located in Fort Worth, for over 19 years. We will also be hearing from Chantel Dudley, who will speak about her experience being incarcerated in FMC Carswell and the injustices and abuse she experienced there. [Additional Speakers to be included]

We discuss the lived experiences of incarcerated women, the law's current state, and how it inadequately addresses the challenges of imprisoned women.
