The World of Corrections (Part 2): Perspectives on Prisoner Culture in Men’s Prisons
This is the second in a two-part webinar series called “The World of Corrections.”
Here in Part 2, advocates are given an overview of the culture in men’s prisons, particularly in the context of sexual violence. While every institution is unique, men’s prisons nationwide share a broad set of attitudes and norms.
The webinar will provide concrete examples from JDI’s advocacy work within men’s prisons, share quotes and audio testimony from current and former prisoners, and offer practical tips from experienced advocates who work on the inside. We hope this information will help advocates create positive interactions with incarcerated survivors and give them a window into an unfamiliar world where their services are sorely needed.
