Students Against Mass Incarceration (SAMI)
1st National Conference:
"Where Do We Go From Here: Re-energizing the Black Student Movement"
The Students Against Mass Incarceration (S.A.M.I) is pleased to announce it will be hosting its first national conference at Howard University on April 19 – 20, 2013.
Founded in 2011, S.A.M.I is a campus-based student organization whose vision is to raise awareness on the campus and in the community of the prison industrial complex, existence of political prisoners, and recidivism.
S.A.M.I invites students, activists, and organizers to attend this historic conference so that we may build a sustainable movement against the prison industrial complex. Attendees will be engaged in workshops, presentations, and performances focused on mass incarceration and its debilitating effects upon the Black community.
The conference will take place on April 19 and 20 from 10am – 6pm. It will be held at Howard University’s Blackburn Center: 2400 Sixth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20059. Visit our website at www.sami-national.org to register. The conference is free and open to the public, so we encourage all to come and participate.
