Event description
A workshop on prison conditions in Singapore.

About this event

How do prisons work in Singapore? What conditions are inmates subjected to daily? Are accountability measures put in place to address harms inflicted by prison staff on incarcerated people? What accommodations are made, if at all, for vulnerable persons, including those who experience severe mental distress?

If you seek answers to these questions, join us for this workshop. Come listen to formerly incarcerated people shed light on their experiences during incarceration. Following which, we will have breakout group discussions on the prison system where we will explore whether prisons really keep Singapore safe and secure, who is disproportionately victimised by the prison system, and whether there is such a thing as a humane prison.

The first 30 minutes of this workshop, where formerly incarcerated people share their experiences, will be broadcast live on Facebook. The rest of the workshop is only open to participants who sign up, who will receive the zoom link via email 24 hours before the workshop begins.

This event is free, but please do consider making a donation at the checkout page to support Transformative Justice Collective's work.
