Georgetown University's Prisons and Justice Initiative was founded to bring together leading scholars, practitioners, and students to examine the problem of mass incarceration from multiple perspectives.
On April 25, the Initiative hosted "37th and Jessup: Classmates Divided by Bars, United for Justice," an event that highlighted the inspiring life experiences and policy recommendations that emerged from Professor Marc Howard's course GOVX-400: Prison Reform Project. This course brought 15 Georgetown undergraduate students into Jessup Correctional Institution, a maximum-security prison in Jessup, Maryland to work together with incarcerated citizens to draft innovative proposals for criminal justice and prison reform.
