Washington DC

Join Politics and Prose and the Washington Literacy Center 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 award-winning journalist Chris Geidner, whose Law Dork newsletter covers the Supreme Court, law, and politics.

For those who can't make it in-person, you can livestream the event here.
