Interrogating Incarceration is a new student-run group for undergraduate and graduate students at Washington University in St. Louis.

The group’s mission is to bring together students who are passionate about issues around mass incarceration to discuss relevant topics and raise awareness on campus. Additionally, the group will host events that fundraise for WashU’s Prison Re-entry Group, which works with previously incarcerated students from WashU’s Prison Education Project (PEP) to assist with their re-entry, transition, and reintegration into the St. Louis community.

Upcoming Events

There are not currently any upcoming events scheduled. Please check back for new events to be added.

In the meantime, if you'd like to explore campus events, please visit Happenings at WashU.
