About the speakers:
Susannah Karin is a licensed social worker with over 20 years of experience in NYC’s criminal justice system. For the past nine years, she has been coordinating re-entry services for clients of the Center for Appellate Litigation, a public defender law firm that represents people at Sex Offender Risk Assessment hearings as well as people appealing their criminal convictions in New York and Bronx counties.
Journalist Judith Levine is author, with Erica R. Meiners, of The Feminist and the Sex Offender (Verso, 2020), which grapples with two interlocking problems: sexual and gender violence; and the state’s unjust, ineffective, and soul-destroying response to it. The book explores how to hold sexual harm-doers accountable without recourse to a criminal justice system that redoubles injuries, fails survivors, and retrenches the conditions that made such abuse possible. How can social justice movements work together to end all violence, both by individuals and the state?
Levine is also a board member of the National Center for Reason and Justice, as well as the author of four other books. She is currently a frequent contributor to The Intercept and Boston Review.
