    We want to invite students to join Community Outreach Dialogues for our monthly panel discussion on Sex and the Prison System. In our interactive dialogue, we will discuss the complexities of both sex and gender during incarceration. We will explore sexual preference, gender identity, and sexism in the United States Prison System. We will be joined by panelist Kirsty Clark, professor at Yale University. The event will be held virtually via WebEx on March 23rd from 6:00-7:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you there! Please RSVP below.
