Sharing Stories (2015)

Eastern District Court, Brooklyn

The focus of "Sharing Stories" was on the intersectionality of issues that the participants faced, including gun violence, suicide, loss, homelessness, community with their own open criminal cases. The participants invited the very criminal justice professionals (judges, assistant district attorneys, public defenders) who were involved in their sentencing to write their stories that connected to the themes that came up in class, and place them on a shared map of Brooklyn.
