Race, LGBTQIA+ Status, and the Prison Industrial Complex

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Please join OUTLaw, the Multi-Cultural Legal Society/Black Law Students Association, and the Equal Justice Society for a talk centered on race, LGBTQIA+ status, and the prison industrial complex, followed by a Q&A session. Our speaker, Aaron El Sabrout, is a transgender Egyptian-American lawyer, writer, and artist. Aaron serves as the Advocacy Manager for Black and Pink, a national prison abolitionist organization dedicated to abolishing the criminal punishment system and liberating LGBTQIA2S+ people and people living with HIV/AIDS who are affected by that system through advocacy, support, and organizing.
If you’ve heard the phrase “prison abolition” and wondered what it actually means, this event is for you! If you are curious about how you, as a member of the legal community, can show up for marginalized communities, this event is for you!
This event will be held virtually and can be accessed here: Students, faculty, and staff with all perspectives are encouraged to attend, but engaging respectfully is required.
