Saturday, September 21: 5 pm - 7 pm
Click here to read more about the panelists.
In affiliation with the Justice In Justice exhibition, join first-generation Studios on the Park artist and board member, Henry A. J. Ramos, Paso Robles Police Chief Ty Lewis, and other civic leaders in a community conversation on important justice issues affecting our homes, our neighborhoods, and our larger community. Building on issues covered in his new book, Democracy & The Next American Economy, Ramos will be joined in discussion by leading experts focusing on the prospects for advancing new models in violence prevention and restorative justice. Discussants will examine opportunities to reduce community violence, discourage repeat offenses, and lower tax payer expense through alternative sentencing and punishments for all but the most dangerous criminals--including intensive community service, education, and victim reconciliation efforts. Panelists will also discuss the issues in the context of what is at stake for our larger society and economy looking to the future ahead. Books will be available for purchase with an autographed dedication by the author.
