How Sex Offender Laws are Failing Us. A talk by Emily Horowitz. At St. Francis College, Professor Horowitz teaches courses in sociology and criminal justice, directs the Institute for Peace & Justice, and founded and co-directs the post-prison college program (a nationally recognized program that helps formerly incarcerated students earn college degrees). Her scholarly research extends from a focus on sex offenses to wrongful convictions to various topics in educational policy. She directs the Senior Citizen Lecture Series, with colleagues in the History and American Studies departments, a free weekly event with invited guest lecturers for senior citizens and members of the community. She is frequently quoted in media outlets about sex offense policies, and delivered keynote addresses at two major sex offense advocacy conferences.
