Jocelyn Simonson on Radical Acts of Justice at Greenlight Bookstore

Greenlight Bookstore
686 Fulton Street,
Brooklyn NY

Join Greenlight Bookstore and Hammer & Hope magazine for a launch event to celebrate the publication Radical Acts of Justice by Jocelyn Simonson, a leading authority on bail reform and social movements. Radical Acts of Justice argues that the answer to mass incarceration lies not with experts and pundits, but with ordinary people taking extraordinary collective action, using the tools of criminal procedure to shift power away from the elite actors at the front of the courtroom and toward the swelling collective in the back. Simonson will be joined in conversation by Amna A. Akbar, a professor of law at the Ohio State University, Moritz College of Law.
