GBH hosts a panel with local experts about challenges and success for the recently released from incarceration, part of its ongoing series Life After Prison.
Each year thousands of people return from the state’s prisons and county jails facing challenges in finding work, housing and, in general re-integrating into society. Our series has focused on struggles of prisoners seeking education on the inside and, on the outside, staying out of trouble. We’ve looked at the rising multimillion-dollar state prison budget amidst a plummeting population. We’ve talked to dozens of returning citizens, experts and government officials about what needs to be done to help people succeed.
Chris Burrell, investigative reporter, will host a conversation with State Senator Liz Miranda, Leslie Credle, Executive Director of Justice For housing and Armand Coleman, Executive Director of Transformational Prison Project (TPP). They will explore the challenges of re-entry after a time in prison and discuss solutions to be implemented.
Join us for a panel discussion with local experts. Following the discussion, please join for a community engagement session with our investigative team and organizations that work on the re-entry process.
Doors open at 5:30pm
