Thinking Beyond the Binary of "Violent" and "Nonviolent" Offenders with Michael Fischer
Whatsjust presents Critical Conversations
This week's critical conversation features Michael Fischer, a writer, activist, and advocate. Michael was incarcerated for 2 years in upstate New York and in this conversation, we speak about how social connections significantly impacted his opportunities upon re-entry, how his whiteness and the location of his arrest impacted his experiences with the criminal justice system, how to hold individuals accountable and increase public safety without relying on prisons, and how the binary constructs of "violent" and "nonviolent" offenders are detrimental to the pursuit of equity and justice.
On our second episode we sit down with Michael Fischer, head trainer of Burn Boot Camp La Crosse South and dive into his background in the fitness world. www.burnbootcamp.com/la-crosse-south-wi www.burnbootcamp.com/la-crosse-north-wi www.burnbootcamp.com/holmen-wi www.burnbootcamp.com/rochester-north-mn www.burnbootcamp.com/rochester-south-mn www.burnbootcamp.com/eden-prairie-mn
