Virtual Workshop: "Defining Justice"

Eastern State Penitentiary, an abandoned prison turned criminal justice museum, is one of the top tourist destinations in Philadelphia. As the first true penitentiary in the world, this is definitely the place to examine the past and present of criminal justice reform and consider: What comes next?

On Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 10am we will participate in one of their most popular virtual workshops, “Defining Justice.” This interactive program explores prison's past and present, and utilizes inquiry-based learning to catalyze conversation about what justice means to each of us.

We will meet and discuss with staff leaders in Education and Tour Programs who built the new virtual classroom visits. In the process, they navigated teaching social justice programming against the backdrop of a global pandemic, a summer of protests, and the recent 2020 election.

In addition, we will learn about Eastern State’s role as a ‘fair chance’ employer and its focus on hiring formerly incarcerated people onto the Education team. To learn more about Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, please visit

Registration is open! (Closing Monday, Feb. 1, 2021).
