Yvette Harris to participate in “Families on Death Row”

Our own Yvette Harris will take part in an event sponsored by the University Libraries, the Department of Psychology, and the Miami Alumni Association entitled, “Families on death row: The work of women in securing innocence.” The program will feature Melinda Dawson discussing how the criminal justice affected her family because of the wrongful conviction of her husband, Alison Cohen presenting a summary of current death penalty legislation, and Yvette Harris discussing how maternal imprisonment has an impact on mothering and how families adjust to maternal incarceration with a specific focus on mothers who are on death row.

This event will take place on Wednesday, March 2, from 12-1 p.m. as a virtual event. You may register for the event on the Alumni Association’s website.
