MOCURE Conference – Families And Inmates Fighting For Their Human Rights
America has more people per capita incarcerated, by a large margin, than any other nation on the planet. The land of the free is anything but, and the number of falsely convicted is only now starting to become apparent. Just as scandalous as the number incarcerated is Why they are incarcerated…..Profit is the motive. Wall Street loves the Prison Industrial Complex that preys on the lives and income of mainly the poor, legally enslaving inmates and financially and emotionally enslaving their families as well. Many families must mortgage their present and future to help their loved ones survive behind bars and gain their release.
There is a growing call from academia and activism on the part of prisoners and family to demand changes because the Corrections Industry does little to nothing to rehabilitate and instead is making the problem worse. This year’s Conference of Missouri Citizens United for the Reform of Errants, MOCURE will help you understand how the Justice System has been subverted from protecting our communities from crime to making us more unsafe and our communities less viable.
The Keynote speaker will be Frank Chapman, a well known activist against police killings of civilians, police brutality and more in Chicago, Illinois. There will be workshops on Mass Incarceration, abuse and mistreatment of the incarcerated, Police brutality and unjustified use of force, incompetent legal counsel from both private and public defenders, a plea system that entraps the innocent and more.
Host Keith Brown El will talk with Frank Chapman, a community organizer and activist from Chicago, Hedy Harden, Chair of MOCURE. Then in the second half Keith returns with Salam Jones to talk to Jesse Scott, a formerly incarcerated citizen about what it is like behind bars as well as Shirley Minor about the struggle to advocate for their loved ones.
