MEI RISE Chat panelists will discuss the racial and socioeconomic inequalities of the criminal justice system, from targeted arrests to recidivism to attempts to reduce inequality through marijuana legalization. They will also cover the link between mental health issues and drug addiction (with a special mention of drug issues in Coles County) and note how some countries and US programs now promote mental health treatment options over prison for users.
Panelists: Fulbright Scholar and special guest Dr. Alonzo DeCarlo, Dr. Danessa Carter, Prof. Erin Rowland, and Elizabeth "Liz" Stephens
