The Beyond the Bars Fellowship offers students and community members an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of mass incarceration and social change; and to collaborate with social justice organizers, activists, and academics to plan the annual Beyond the Bars Conference. The 2018–2019 Beyond the Bars Fellows come from many schools across Columbia (Social Work, Teachers College, International and Public Affairs, Public Health, Sociology, and Columbia College); other colleges (CUNY Graduate Center and John Jay College of Criminal Justice); and a variety of community and government organizations (the Brooklyn Bail Fund, the Door, the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, the Social Change Agents Institute, G.I.R.L.S., the New York City Department of Education, and Vocal New York).
