Strip searching is a 'routine' practice in women's prisons across Canada - strip searching occurs after visits with children/family, attending religious services in the community, participating in work releases, etc.

It happens everyday, but we rarely hear from the people who are being strip searched about how this practice impacts them...

Join us for a panel discussion with people who used to be incarcerated as they share their experiences of being strip searched while in prison.

Senator Kim Pate, former ED of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies will also be speaking

Popcorn will be for sale at the event by a woman who used to be in prison who started her own business:

Cons & Kernels - "popcorn so good, it's criminal" - $6.75 a bag (cash and credit accepted)

**Sensitive topics are going to be discussed throughout the evening**
