Community Event on Gender and Incarceration

Lewis & Clark College’s annual Gender Studies Symposium is featuring many interesting events, but one in particular stands out:

Workshop: The Masking of Self in Captive Spaces
Facilitated by Joshua Wright

Joshua Edward Wright, who has recently been released from serving over four years in prison, will discuss the struggle to remain true to yourself and the toll it takes to conform to a hostile environment. This workshop will be based on his personal story that culminated in the co-founding of the first Gender and Sexuality class in the Oregon Department of Corrections. Format is 30-minute presentation, followed by communal discussion and collaboration.

This workshop will be held Thursday, March 14, at 1:45 pm.  All events are free to the public, and held at the Lewis & Clark College campus.  Find more information about the symposium online here.
