“More than 2.2 million men, women and children live behind bars in the U.S. The overuse and abuse of incarceration is one of the most pressing Human rights concerns of our time.” – The Correctional Association of New York
We want to change this. Family & Friends of Incarcerated People and Institute for Policy Studies will host the first of a two part series focused upon exposing the impact of the Prison Industrial Complex on individuals, families and communities.
Part one will give first hand perspectives and experiences of incarcerated persons while they are on “the inside,” with a screening of Released to Life followed by a panel discussion with the insights of formerly incarcerated persons who are now giving back to their communities in profound ways.
Moderator: Stuart Anderson, founding member of Family & Friends of Incarcerated People (FFOIP)
