Carol Shaprio

Justice system activist and artist.

“I’m an eternal optimist, a glass half full person. We can do better by our justice system. My art is an outlet for that expression.”

“It’s really a punishment industry; I believe we can dismantle it.”

“I resigned from the New York Parole Board after being a constant critic. My colleagues were elated I resigned.”

“I was born with the resilient gene. Though my mother was critically injured by a drunk driver, I strongly believe in forgiveness and redemption.”
