Human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson represents those who have been abandoned. His clients are people on death row — abused and neglected children who were prosecuted as adults and placed in adult prisons where they were beaten and sexually abused, and mentally disabled people whose illnesses helped land them in prison where their special needs were unmet.

Today he spoke to us about justice in the 21st century:

"The new statistic from the Justice [Department] is really disheartening: The Justice Department is now reporting that one in three black male babies born in the 21st century is expected to go to jail or prison. The statistic for Latino boys is one in six. That statistic was not true in the 20th century. It was not true in the 19th century. It didn’t become true until the 21st century. That means we have enormous work to do to improve our commitment to society that is not haunted and undermined and corrupted by our legacy of racial inequality.”

@dendrodavi for @icp  | With students from @wpunj, I spent about 6 months digitizing nearly 1,000 photographs of scientific expeditions of the Tree-Ring Laboratory at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory going back to the 1970s. My colleagues and I at the TRL have traveled the world in search of long-lived, climate sensitive trees in order to create long-term histories of temperature and precipitation. The images pictured here are from Alaska. #climatechange #globalwarming #wpunj #treeringlab #dendrochronology #kodachrome
