NPNO’s Ava Rogers speaks at Unprisoned panel on Juvenile Justice

Join NPNO’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, Ava Rogers, and partners at a special, live event about Juvenile Justice and the premier of the new season of the audio documentary, Unprisoned.

Wednesday, October 2nd from 6-8 pm at
Jazz and Heritage Center, 1225 North Rampart Street

Unprisoned has been working on producing a new season of audio documentaries at the intersection of human lives and mass incarceration. This season will focus on exploding some of the prevailing myths we collectively hold about the criminal legal system.

The first episode is about the myth of the super-predator — long defunct by brain science, renounced by the man who coined the term, yet still employed in both name and concept both by justice system actors and everyday folks. At the heart of this beautifully told episode is the story of one person whose remarkable life defies this myth.

The evening will begin with a listening session of the documentary followed by a panel discussion on Juvenile Justice with guests Rachel Gassert, from Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights, Ava Rogers from New Pathways New Orleans, Meredith Angelson, of Southern Poverty Law Center, and Sarah Omojola, from The Welcoming Project, along with the documentary’s main character, Joel Ware.
