About the event

Join us for the second MNJRC Continuing the Conversation of 2024 to explore what should be done with Minnesota's aging prisons.

About the event:

Minnesota’s antiquated correctional facilities are in dire need of attention. St. Cloud Reformatory opened in 1889. Built in 1914, Stillwater is the state's largest close-security institution. The design and dilapidated state of both facilities make them obsolete, a reality that became clear in the summer of 2023 when over 100 inmates took part in a tense protest over conditions in Stillwater. After decades of inaction on this issue, this panel examines the viability of these two prisons and explores the future of the incarceration infrastructure in Minnesota.

Panelists

MNJRC's Will Cooley will moderate the discussion with panelists Margaret Zadra, Ombudsperson for Corrections, State of Minnesota, Sgt. Jack Sofie, Guard with the Minnesota Department of Corrections, and Christopher Fausto Cabrera, Author and Artist
