The Meaning of Life Book Talk: Washington, D.C.
Marc Mauer and Ashley Nellis will discuss their new book, on The Meaning of Life: The Case for Abolishing Life Sentences, at Politics and Prose. Arguing that prison terms should be limited to no more than twenty years, they draw on the experiences of six people impacted by such sentencing to show that mandatory life terms serve no practical purpose and have no moral justification.
This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
