InterDependence Prison Project Meeting
with Michael Carey and Danielle Sered
The Interdependence Project
302 BoweryNew York, NY 10012
Sun, 10/18/2009, 2:00pm - 4:00pm
All are invited to the next meeting of the InterDependence Prison Project on Sunday, October 18 at 2PM.
We will discuss our tutoring program, in collaboration with the College Initiative, as well as possible advocacy/policy initiatives for the group. We will also welcome a guest speaker: Danielle Sered from Common Justice.
Danielle is the founder and director of Common Justice, a participatory justice project based in Brooklyn, NY. The project is both an innovative victim service program and an alternative to incarceration. Common Justice works to improve and transform the system's response to serious crime by offering an opportunity for dialogue and healing. The project provides a respectful and effective means of accountability for those responsible, an equitable and dignified avenue to healing for those harmed, and an opportunity for communities to break cycles of violence. Common Justice helps minimize the use of incarceration in cases where it does not serve the public interest, facilitate the well-being of those harmed by crime, and address the underlying causes of conflict and harm.
Danielle has also served as the interim Deputy Director of The Vera Institute's Adolescent Reentry Initiative,
Court Innovation's Harlem Community Justice Center, has had extensive involvement in gang intervention work, and has experience with a variety of mediation and conflict resolution techniques.
Danielle received her BA from Emory University and her master's degrees in poetry and European literature from New York University and Oxford University (UK), where she studied as a Rhodes Scholar. She has had a regular meditation practice since 2000.
