Thank you to everyone who joined us for a night of storytelling, discussion, and exploration of the past, present, and future of girls’ and women’s justice in New York.

This panel event, Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness to the Incarcerated Girls and Women of New York – with formerly incarcerated women, advocates, lawyers, professors, and judges – brought us together to learn about and discuss what has been done in the name of justice and protection in New York State, and to imagine what the future of girls’ justice looks like.

This event is funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This public event and accompanying exhibition is made in partnership with For Freedoms, an organization devoted to inclusive civic participation through the arts that originally was inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941): freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

This event is associated with the exhibition currently on view in the Charles P. Sifton Gallery at the Brooklyn Federal Courthouse, which will be open until February 15th, 2019.
