The EMI was birthed from the vision of clergy, faith & community leaders, organizers, families, and others impacted by incarceration. The goal is to equip the community with practical tools to dismantle the systems and structures that undergird the industry of mass imprisonment.
Over the span of three (3) days, conference attendees will learn from influencers and thought leaders in criminal justice reform. Dynamic plenaries, workshops, panels and films will be offered that arm communities across the country with resources needed to effectively engage in the fight against the rise of the prison industrial complex.
T.I. (born Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.), has been an up-close witness and has personally experienced the impact of America's 'war on drugs' and its disproportionate and devastating consequences in communities of color. He, along with actor Mark Ruffalo (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0749263/)and Comedian Chris Tucker (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000676/), have made sizeable contributions to this week's bailout efforts.
The conference will be held at Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. "Cash bail, or wealth-based detention, is one cog in the massive wheel and machinery of mass incarceration crushing poor people everyday," says Rev. Warnock, Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church. "We join with faith leaders and human rights activists from all across our nation to say "THIS MUST END." And, so must America's prison industrial complex, by far, the largest in the world. We are better than this. That's what this weekend of bailouts and this upcoming conference are all about."
