Today, the United States makes up about 5% of the world's population but holds over 20% of the world's prisoners.

In response to this crisis, people across the political spectrum are working to de-incarcerate prisons.

Anne Parsons, author of From Asylum to Prison, will discuss this movement and the lessons that we can learn from her research on the closure of state mental hospitals in the late 20th century United States.
