    Reproductive Justice Colloquium Series

    Join us for the second event in our Fall 2023 Rapoport Center Reproductive Justice Colloquium Series presented by Cynthia Conti-Cook, Technology Fellow at the Ford Foundation. Sarah Brayne, Assistant Professor of Sociology, will respond.

    Abstract: Our digital devices and the corporate archives that support them have given police and other system state actors profound access to the details of our daily lives through legal maneuvers designed to circumvent constitutional protections from search, seizure and self-incrimination. All of this is happening in an ecosystem of data sharing across jurisdictions, state actor membership in corporate surveillance networks, and through new requirements for digital sharing of medical records. People forced into self-managed care for issues related to everything between birth through burial will increasingly need to rely on their digital bodies’ ability to safely traverse digital borders.

    50 Years and a Wake Up

    2023 marks 50 years since the United States embarked on a path of mass incarceration that has led to a staggering increase in the prison population. The prison population has grown 500% since 1973. Today, almost 2 million individuals – disproportionately Black Americans – are incarcerated in our nation’s prisons and jails.

    The incarceration rate for women has grown 525% between 1980 -2021. Over 80% of incarcerated women are mothers. With Black women being disproportionately impacted, so are their families and the families of the incarcerated population. Mass incarceration has been a catalyst for dismantling black and brown families at alarming rates.The rate of growth for female imprisonment has been twice as high as that of men since 1980.

    This year, The Sentencing Project and a coalition of advocates, experts, and partners have launched a public education campaign, 50 Years and a Wake Up: Ending The Mass Incarceration Crisis In America, designed to raise awareness about the dire state of the criminal legal system in the country.

    Please join us for a forum to reflect on this anniversary while recognizing the impacted individuals and organizations who are leading the fight to dismantle the incarceration machine in Austin and throughout Texas.
