RDRI studies—and aims to change—the criminal justice system’s impact on communities in the greater Rochester area.
RDRI hosts speaker series, workshops, film screenings, and symposia meant to educate the University community about mass incarceration in the Rochester area.
RDRI looks to build collaborations with people doing similar work, including justice-involved, scholars, activists, practitioners, and students. Please reach out and let us know about your work or organization.
Established in 2016, the Rochester Prison Education Project (RPEP) works to ensure that the University of Rochester does its fair share in educating men and women incarcerated in the greater Rochester area. In addition, RPEP educates people in the Rochester community about the crisis of American mass incarceration.
