BHSI Fellow, Katherine Katcher, speaking at Chicago Ideas Week

“Our generation is waking up to the notion that we criminalize poor in this country and that we criminalize people of color at alarming rates. So whether you have  a long arrest history isn’t probative of your guilt or your worth, it’s probative of how many police officers are on your street, are monitoring your daily lives, your parents’ lives, and the kind of world you grow up in.” – Katherine Katcher at Chicago Ideas week.
