Dr. Renee Herberle spoke on "Mass Incarceration and American Exceptionalism."

Bringing prisons out of the shadows and into the public eye was the mission of Prison Awareness Week that took place at the University of Toledo.

The events were sponsored and planned by the UT School for Interdisciplinary Studies; departments of History, Criminal Justice and Social Work, Philosophy and Religious Studies; UT Inside/Out Prison Exchange Program; Phi Alpha Theta history honor society; UT Libertarians; and UT Program in Law and Social Thought.

The UT efforts were part of a larger coalition, Toledoans for Prison Awareness, whose members include the American Civil Liberties Union (Northwest Ohio chapter), Lucas County Libertarian Party and Move to Amend Toledo.
