Locked Up in Alabama: Stories & Solutions


Listen Live

Inside Alabama’s prisons, thousands of men live in overcrowded dormitories with minimal supervision, facing a constant threat of violence and sexual assault. If conditions don’t improve, a federal judge could intervene and force action. It’s a crisis decades in the making – and it’s reached a tipping point.

WBHM’s podcast Deliberate Indifference tells the story of how we got here. Now we continue the conversation in person.

Join host and reporter Mary Scott Hodgin for an evening of art, storytelling and discussion. Learn about organizations working to make a difference in the criminal justice system. Meet people who’ve spent time in prison and hear their stories. And leave with ideas for a smarter approach to public safety.

Event is recommended for mature audiences.
