Health Instead of Punishment Program Steering Committee

Our Steering Committee helps guide our Health Instead of Punishment Program’s strategic directions. We believe social change work must be rooted in accountability to people directly impacted by criminalization, incarceration, and surveillance, as well as movement leaders.

Thus, our current members include:

  • Gabby Medina Falzone, Department of Multicultural and Gender Studies, California State University, Chico
  • James King, The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
  • Mark Rice, WISDOM Wisconsin
  • Michael L. Mauney, II, incarcerated organizer with the DeeperThanWater Coalition
  • Molly Porzig, Critical Resistance
  • William D Lopez, University of Michigan, School of Public Health
