Co-Creating Our Future: A Conversation on Mass Incarceration in Boston

Impact Hub Boston invites you to join us for deep discussion around the issue of mass incarceration and the role it plays in the future of Boston. You’ll hear from a panel of experts about their diverse experiences with the topic, and each will share a pointed question related to their work. All participants are then invited to engage in small group conversations with these experts in an effort to move their work forward. This is a chance to bring your unique perspective to creatively brainstorm with changemakers in Boston working on this complex social issue.
We are convening a varied group of social entrepreneurs, local government, community leaders, nonprofit professionals, business leaders, philanthropists, academics, and engaged citizens for productive conversation drawn from a wide a range of lived experience and professional experience in different fields, neighborhoods, and sectors.
Join us if you are interested in learning more about, and contributing to, strategic work around mass incarceration, criminal justice reform, and reintegration being done by Boston’s public, private, and nonprofit leaders.
Featured Panelists:
Adam Foss: Prosecutor Impact
Adam J. Foss is a former Assistant District Attorney in the Juvenile Division of the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office (SCDAO) in Boston, MA, and a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform and the importance of the role of the prosecutor in ending mass incarceration. Mr. Foss believes that the profession of prosecution is ripe for reinvention requiring better incentives and more measurable metrics for success beyond, simply, “cases won” leading him to found Prosecutor Impact – a non-profit developing training and curriculum for prosecutors to reframe their role in the criminal justice system.
During his nine years as a prosecutor, Mr. Foss collaborated with the courts and the community to develop programming that continues to have a positive impact on the neighborhoods he prosecuted in. In 2018, he was featured in CNN’s documentary “American Jail,” and in 2017 the Mandela Foundation named him Nelson Mandela Changemaker of the Year.
Brandale Randolph: 1854 Cycling
The 1854 Cycling Company is a premium bicycle and apparel brand founded in 2016, as a vehicle for poverty alleviation among formerly incarcerated people, particularly women. The company was founded by me, Brandale Randolph, a poverty alleviation advocate who has written two books on poverty alleviation and gave a well-received TEDx talk at TEDxTexasTechUniversity in 2013. The 1854 Cycling Company has been featured by Bloomberg Magazine, Ebony Magazine, Boston WCVB’s Chronicle, and various other nationally syndicated articles, trade publications, radio shows, podcasts, and blogs. In 2018\, we were selected as a member of MassChallenge, in their 2018 Boston Cohort. Our goal is to generate enough traction and revenue to establish an assembly facility that may be able to one day support the lives and employment of formerly incarcerated people.
Additional speakers will be announced soon.
