What is the PRison Industrial Complex? the prison industrial complex (PIC) is a complicated system situated at the intersection of governmental and private interests that uses prisons as a solution to social, political, and economic problems. The PIC depends upon the oppressive systems of racism, classism, sexism and homophobia. It includes human rights violations, the death penalty, industry and labor issues, policing, political prisoners, and the elimination of dissent.
Come learn more about the PIC and how it effects our life locally. Three short speakers fro campus and the community, and several short films including Lockdown USA, A Prison in the Fields, and USA INCarcerated.
