Professor Jo-Ann Della Giustina (criminal justice) participated in the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety's conference, "Rethinking Reentry: A Massachusetts Imperative." The goal was to create tailored concrete strategies to support successful reentry of returning citizens after incarceration, and was held in anticipation of Gov. Deval Patrick's statewide Reentry Task Force. Dr. Giustina also presented her paper, "Incarcerated workers in the Prison Industrial Complex: From convict leasing to modern day prison labor," at the Justice Studies Association conference in Chicago. She is the national treasurer of the Justice Studies Association.
