Join a deep dive discussion with thought leaders and view moving personal performances from formerly incarcerated people developed in partnership with The Moth, at the kick-off event for Opportunity Justice’s Spatial Justice Project.

The innovative and interactive Spatial Justice Project uses the Jewish holiday of Sukkot as a forum for engaging communities in discussions, activities and action around Spatial Justice: The idea that constructed spaces — from communities, to cultural centers, to prisons — play a defining role in how we collectively define and implement Justice. Spatial Justice Project public installations planned for Sukkot 2022 in multiple cities and correctional institutions place a traditional Sukkah adjacent to a “Confinement Sukkot” — a recreation of a typical solitary confinement cell. The dramatic physical dichotomy of the two structures, coupled with on-site interactive programming, is designed to foster productive dialogue on spatial justice between individuals, within communities, and across communities and faiths.
