The public is invited to a free social justice lecture at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Saint Martin’s University, 5000 Abbey Way SE. Lacey.

“Ideas for Policing with Justice and Ending Over-Incarceration” will feature Starcia Ague, a youth and family advocate program administrator with the state Department of Social and Health Services, and Sarah Lippek, an attorney with The Public Advocate.

In 2011, Ague received a full and unconditional pardon from Gov. Chris Gregoire for her juvenile record. Ague has a degree in criminal justice from Washington State University and is the subject of the documentary “Starcia.”

Lippek specializes in immigration and civil rights law, and is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Law.

The event, which will take place in room 110 of Harned Hall, is part of Saint Martin’s Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture Series.
