About

Eye “ing” The society is a blog about the direct and indirect consequences of incarceration and other social issues.  This blog will shed light on the stigmas that are placed on people in society who have a criminal record, HIV/AIDS, mental health issues, those who struggle with substance abuse and other disabilities.  This blog will attempt to make people aware of Maternal Incarceration and what impact it has on women, children, and the fate of our society. The goal of this blog is to change public opinion, views and to spark policy changes.  It will also give a platform for the formerly incarcerated, the general public, and employers, to use to explain the role they play in the economy and the social structure of society.  Eye “ing” Society also talks about politics, health, community, children, family structure prisoners and offenders rights, law enforcement, judicial and prosecutorial procedures, ethics and other issues that pertain to social problems in society. The goal is to get people involved and concerned about what happens in this country.  A lot of times the focus is on other countries and their issues, causing Americans to lose focus on problems at home.  DeShunda Brown-Boulcher was born in The Bronx, NY and currently lives in Chesapeake, Virginia.  She is married with four children and four grandchildren.  She graduated from Norfolk State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology-with an emphasis on Criminal Justice issues.  She currently attends Saint Leo University, pursuing her Masters of Science in Criminal Justice with a concentration in corrections.  She is a member of the W.E.B Dubois Sociology club and the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice (NABCJ).   DeShunda advocates for ex-offenders, and other justice involved individuals.  Her interests include public policy, criminal justice reform, evidence-based practices and disproportionate minority contact, She has also created a publication “Incarcerated Free”  which attempts to encourage, motivate  and inspire purposeful lives for high-risk juveniles and others who are involved in the criminal and juvenile justice system.  Her personal motto is ” It takes no light from my candle to light the candle of another”.
