In an effort to shed more light on Delaware’s correctional system, Sen. Marie Pinkney and Rep. Melissa Minor-Brown will host a two-day, all-virtual State of State of Corrections Summit next week.
Scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Tuesday, February 22, and Wednesday, February 23, the event will feature national speakers, a community listening session, and a series of roundtable discussions. Roundtable topics will include physical and mental wellness of incarcerated people, the reach of the juvenile justice system, the lived experiences of correctional staff, the state’s expanding re-entry programs and more.
