The Searchlight Series at Eastern State Penitentiary

This interactive presentation will focus on the experience of one family following the death of their son, Alex. With the victim and the families as the focus, they will describe what they have experienced, observations of the criminal justice system, and explore proposals for change.


Mr. Rojas and Ms. Garcia are co-founders of the National Homicide Justice Alliance (NHJA). The group advocates for the rights of families of homicide victims and empowers others to advocate for themselves.


This event is part of Eastern State's ongoing Searchlight Series of events addressing issues in contemporary corrections. The Searchlight Series discussions take place the first Tuesday of every month, free and open to the public. No reservations required.
