Noted criminal justice activists to visit Binghamton University


Criminal justice activists and death penalty opponents Jon Scott Rice and David Kaczynski will discuss restorative justice and the use of capital punishment at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 1, in Lecture Hall 10 on the Binghamton University campus. The presentation is free and open to the public. 

Rice is a certified social worker with over 18 years of experience serving in youth, adult and family agencies. He currently works with victims of sexual victimization as a primary clinician with the Sexual Assault and Crime Victims Assistance program for Rensselaer County in Troy, NY. He also co-facilitates therapy groups at Forensic Mental Health Associates in Albany, working with those who have committed sexual offenses.

The Kaczynski family came to national attention in April 1996 with the arrest and subsequent conviction of Theodore Kaczynski, the so-called Unabomber. David Kaczynski played a significant role in apprehending his brother and lobbied for almost two years to prevent his execution. In July 2001, David Kaczynski was selected as the executive director of New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty, a statewide organization that unconditionally opposes capital punishment.

The presentation is sponsored by Binghamton University’s School of Education and Human Development.
