I am a co-director of Stetson’s Higher Education in Prison program, Community Education Project (CEP).
We are hosting a virtual conference, “Florida Prisons in Uncertain Times,” to be held on April 9 and 10, 2021. Here is our Call for Proposals. The deadline for submissions is January 15th, and you can submit your proposal here.
We are focused in Florida and would like robust state and regional participation from diverse stakeholders; but, we are also very glad to see proposals from national organizations engaged in work connected to Florida. This conference is funded by the Laughing Gull Foundation; we are very grateful for their support.
We specifically invite organizations and activists to join this conversation by submitting a CFP; we also specifically invite currently and formerly incarcerated students, HEP instructors and administrators, state legislators and policymakers, and more to submit a CFP. Indeed, if you work on incarceration and post-incarceration, you are warmly invited to submit. Again, the extended deadline for submissions is January 15th, and you can submit here.
Let me know if you have any questions! Please share this CFP widely, especially through your organizations and in FL.
