The MLUC Criminal Justice Reform Team arranged for a 2-hour tour of Philadelphia’s historic Eastern State Penitentiary. Sixteen members of MLUC participated. The tour was led by one of our own members who shared their experiences and insights with the criminal justice system.
Eastern State offers a monthly program, on the 1st Tuesday of each month. Our tour attended a program by Dr. Stephanie Fulmer about the needs of the mentally ill within the justice system. A second trip may be planned with a hands-on approach to learning more about our criminal justice system with a focus on how likely are you to be arrested.
Thank you Dana Kelley and Irene Mehnert for organizing this “field trip.”
