The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights presents its annual symposium, Re-examining Incarceration, on Tuesday April 17. This year's event features a critical discussion of civil rights issues surrounding incarcerated persons in Texas.

The event begins at noon with lunch and a special guest speaker, Kerry Max Cook, author of Chasing Justice. Kerry Max Cook is an innocent man who spent 22 years on Texas' Death Row. Mr. Cook's long struggle for freedom and exoneration is said to be the result of one of the worst cases of prosecutorial misconduct in American history. Mr. Cook will be telling his story in the auditorium, TNH 2.114.

Lunch is provided on a first come, first served basis. Two panels will follow in the Eidmann Courtroom, one discussing the state of juvenile justice in Texas and the second discussing how civil society can work to effect change within the Texas prison system.

Panelists are specialists in this field, and include Will Harrell from the ACLU of Texas, as well as representatives from the Texas Civil Rights Project, the Texas Coalition Advocate for Juvenile Justice, and the LBJ School of Public Policy.
