Event Description

Engage in a panel discussion with formerly incarcerated residents discussing topics of rehabilitation, redemption, and rewriting narratives.

From social stigma to loss of opportunities, incarceration comes with many challenges that can stain one's character and reputation in the public eye.

However, by actively participating in reintegration programs and making positive choices, individuals can pave a path towards a brighter future beyond their past mistakes.
