Community Conversations - Restoring Rights
March 7, 2019 | Panel begins at 6:15 p.m.
Milwaukee Art Museum - Lubar Auditorium (700 N Art Museum Dr | Milwaukee)
“The employment of people with criminal records is an issue we all should be talking about. I encourage HR professionals to lead conversations about inclusive hiring at their organizations so other executives can make informed, sensible and beneficial hiring decisions.”
Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Society for Human Resource Management
We are inviting all HR professionals to join the community conversation.
On March 7th, there will be a panel discussion starting at 6:15pm in the Lubar Auditorium, facilitated by Dasha Kelly, on reentry, restoring citizenry and the societal impact of restricting the voting rights of individuals reentering the community after incarceration. This discussion is the last of a series held in conjunction with The San Quentin Project: Nigel Poor and the Men of San Quentin State Prison, on view until March 10, 2019 in the Bradley Family Gallery at the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Museum admission is not required to attend this event. No advanced registration is required. More details on this exciting event will be available soon.
Please join us before the event for an express talk by a docent from the museum about the exhibition. Meet outside the Bradley Family Gallery upstairs in the main exhibit building at 5:30.
The San Quentin Project: Nigel Poor and the Men of San Quentin State Prison
Begun in 2011, The San Quentin Project has evolved from Nigel Poor’s experience teaching visual literacy at the prison for the Prison University Project, the work in this exhibition utilizes personal narrative to illuminate and counter common stereotypes the public might have about prison populations.
The San Quentin Project not only invites audiences to consider how images of prisoners have been codified, but also seeks to promote the critical reading of cultural codes and power structures inherent within visual images. Ultimately, the project hopes to raise awareness of the overwhelming benefits arts and humanities offer to incarcerated individuals and the communities they will re-enter.
