System Error is meant to trigger critical thinking and active citizenship—to promote compassion and empathy, and to inspire the social justice activism in all of us. We interviewed on-the-ground activists to explore and learn about social change and advocacy specifically pertaining to prison reform. We took photos and testimonies from activists who fight for systemic change. Inspired by their stories and hard work, we created this exhibit to highlight the importance of their work.

What we have learned as a class is that you don’t need to be on the frontlines, or have a personal connection to bring change. Our goal is to share activists’ stories—to raise awareness about societal injustices and bring real change to our communities as well as society at large.
