Returning Citizens: Hear Me Out
September 23 | 9:00 - 10:00 AM | Room 2584
The workshop will show Willie Knighten’s TED talk on the inconsistencies of the criminal justice system and how to advocate for people returning to our communities who leave our jails and prison systems (Returning Citizens). Willie will share his personal triumph over incarceration and criminal lifestyle. Individuals should learn the barriers and hardships for people leaving jail and prisons, the need for criminal justice reform, and the mentality of people in and out of prisons. The workshop will provide service providers the key when working with this particular population.
