Your final project will involve creating an infographic on how racial disparities, equity, and/or injustice affect one area of the justice system. The infographic should be centered on one of the segments of the justice system we studied in the course this semester (e.g., juvenile justice, policing, courts, corrections, sentencing, capital punishment). For this assignment, you are asked to use these graphics to dispel commonly shared mis- and dis-information you have seen on social media and/or the news about racial/ethnic, injustice/justice, and equity as it relates to the selected area of the justice system.
You are welcome to create your own infographic using whatever software platform you prefer (e.g., word, powerpoint, photoshop, etc.). You may also find many infographic templates and ideas online by searching google, or recommended websites such as canva.comor visme.co that allow you to edit existing templates for free.
The goals of this project are to 1) debunk common misconceptions about race and ethnicity in the justice system; 2) use data, science, and facts to support your position/demonstrate the level, type, scope, and/or impact of racial disparity in the selected segment of the justice system; and 3) create a visually appealing product that you could share in online platforms.
