How do we find a balance between a correction officer’s safety and a prisoner’s rights? Join a panel of leading thinkers for a look at this complex issue. Moderated by Ted Conover (pictured here), author of Newjack, panelists include Brian Fischer, former Commissioner, NYS Department of Corrections, Tom Robbins, who has written about this issue for The New York Times and The Marshall Project, and Mary Lynne Werlwas from The Legal Aid Society’s Prisoner’s Rights Project.
