This event will discuss excerpts from Voices, a collection of stories by incarcerated women that provide facts about criminology, law and society. All inmates of Suffolk County Correctional Facilities, these women have written stories and published family letters to create this second edition of memoirs, which has received positive feedback from the general public and aided in the social and mental development of the authors. The event promises to be a mind- and life-changing experience.

The Criminal Justice Club’s mission is to build friendships and network, as well as educate students and other professors on important topics relating to the justice system.
