The Graduate Group on Criminal Justice and Democracy began as an interdisciplinary interest group by Muhammad Kenyatta in the Law School and June Licence in the Department of American Studies. Its purpose was to provide a "unique program for graduate-level, interdisciplinary education and research on public policy issues of criminal justice, incarceration, and prison-community relationships in Western New York." The foundations lay in the American Studies Department's Prison Studies Program which provided graduate level humanities education in a maximum-security prison setting and the Law School/National Lawyer's Guild Prison Task Force which sent students into area correctional facilities to teach legal research.
