WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — A Wake Forest University law professor is helping to kick off a two-day symposium that takes a look at the criminal justice system.
Mark Rabil, director of the law school’s Innocence and Justice Clinic, will join a panel discussion on Thursday on “Mass Incarceration and the Criminal Justice System.” The symposium continues on Friday at the Z. Smith Reynolds Library Auditorium.l
The symposium serves as an opening for the art exhibit entitled “Release: From Stigma to Acceptance.”
The exhibit is a student-curated project from the Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem. It features the words and visual art of former offenders who have graduated from Project Re-Entry and shared many of the challenges they have faced in returning to society.
The exhibit will be on view until May 1.
