About the Event

Becoming Ms. Burton is the story of one woman's remarkable odyssey from tragedy to prison to recovery, and her recognition as a leading figure in the national justice reform movement. Susan Burton has been a trailblazing advocate for ending mass incarceration, especially as it relates to poor women of color. Her organization, A New Way of Life, operates five safe homes in Los Angeles that supply a lifeline to hundreds of formerly incarcerated women and their children. Becoming Ms. Burton details her remarkable personal transformation.

We will discuss the larger structural changes this country must make in order to achieve racial and economic justice. Becoming Ms. Burton is essential reading for anyone who cares about these issues!
