The Prison-Industrial Complex

This week we examine the Prison Industrial Complex. In the U.S., punishment for commercial profit is becoming the standard business practice. We’ll consider whether this for profit venture is good for Americans, or whether hidden costs may be causing more harm than we realize. Much to consider! This week we’ll utilize 2 resources.

Please remember to bring a 3 dollar donation for the Setauket Neighborhood House
