Please join us for a deconstructive seminar on “What is Justice?” on Wednesday, October 1 at 8pm in Room 405 in the CSSW building located at 1255 Amsterdam Ave. Come discuss the ways in which the power of theoretical concepts and definitions can influence institutional perceptions, and what we can do to create positive change. This event is open to the public we and strongly encourage you to spread the information about the event to others. We are looking for individuals from multi-disciplinary lenses so that we make the seminar as holistic as possible because even one single word can have so much meaning. Please feel free to bring any material or video clips that you might want to share.

The new academic year has begun, and that means a new year for the Criminal Justice Caucus! We would first like to thank previous leaders for establishing and paving the way for this wonderful caucus where we can all get together to discuss and be proactive about issues within the criminal justice system and seeking ways of reforms. We understand that many individuals have supported and been involved in CJC and hope that many continue to be involved; however, those who are no longer able to be involved with CJC please notify us so that we can take your email off our listserv. Those who do wish to begin or continue to be a part of CJC, we welcome you to join us for our first general body meeting tomorrow September 10, 2014 at 12:15pm in the CSSW building (located at 1255 Amsterdam Ave) room C06. We will be discussing the role and vision of CJC along with available leadership positions. We are looking forward to seeing many individuals there and hearing about the passionate issues and events that you are seeking to inform others about. The caucus strongly believes in being a student and community focused organization; therefore, we encourage you to contact and participate in our caucus because without your involvement it is difficult to accomplish our vision of integration and collaboration. We look forward to meeting individuals tomorrow, and hope that everyone is having a great start to the academic year.
