Ending the Stigma of Jail
BCC students come to the College with a broad range of life experiences. That includes some who have been incarcerated. They were the focus of a Tuesday, November 17 online panel discussion “Re-entry: Removing the Stigma of Incarceration,” organized by BCC’s Social Justice Action Committee and the Social Justice Network. Among the speakers were BCC and Hunter College Alum Beverly Emers, the first recipient of a Kalief Browder Scholarship that helps formerly incarcerated BCC students, and Elizabeth Payamps, Director of BCC’s Future Now Program, whose students include those who have been caught up in the justice system.
