Join us for the eighth annual forum on Understanding and Responding to Mass Incarceration (URMI) as we seek to understand and evaluate community and legislative responses to sexual violence, with a special focus on the Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP), a little-known civil commitment program through which 740 people in Minnesota are currently confined – after serving their prison sentences – with very little hope of release.
URMI 2022 will break from simplified media narratives of the “sex offender” to ask: how can communities reinvest in restorative justice and primary prevention to address root causes of sexual violence, while also transforming our current ineffective system of prevention?
This in-person conference on Friday, April 8 will include keynote addresses, presentations by subject experts, panel discussions, breakout sessions, and more. Topics covered will include:
