Liz Mazur Discusses Cancellation of Prison Debate Program

Former Fellow Liz Mazur (’06) was featured in a WGN story about the decision by Illinois Department of Corrections officials to shut down a prison debate program shortly after its members performed for a group of state legislators (“Federal Lawsuit Filed Over Prison Debate Team,” Aug. 28). “Prison officials can’t punish you because they don’t like the message you’re communicating to elected legislators,” Liz said. “They can’t retaliate against you because you caught the attention of legislators.”
