This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. “The Institutions that Change You,’’ Piper Kerman, author of the memoir, “Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison,’’ speaks about the importance of education to incarcerated individuals as an investment in rehabilitation.
Ms. Kerman currently works as a communications consultant with nonprofit, philanthropies and other organizations. She is also a frequently invited speaker to students of law, criminology, gender and women's' studies, sociology and creative writing, as well as correctional organizations and justice reform.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
