States of Incarceration is the first national traveling multi-media exhibition and coordinated public dialogue to explore the history and future of mass incarceration in the United States. The exhibition’s visit to Chicago is hosted by Hull-House and the University of Illinois in collaboration with DePaul University and a New School-led coalition of 500 university students and formerly incarcerated individuals from 20 cities to create the traveling exhibition, which launched in New York City in April 2016.
