Description: Justice for the Incarcerated Collective (JIC) is a student-run organization with a mission to provide Jefferson students with educational, community service, and advocacy initiatives for previously incarcerated or currently incarcerated people. In collaboration with the Institute for Community Justice (ICJ) in Philadelphia, JIC will help medical students gain an understanding of health disparities and the societal inequities from the carceral system through guest speakers and discussions. JIC will assist with ICJ’s ongoing project of working with currently incarcerated men and the wider Philadelphia’s community. JIC will also develop and deliver curriculum to formerly incarcerated people at ICJ and the youth in the local juvenile detention center regularly. There are no dues or fees required.
