About 95 percent of the people who go to state prisons will be released at some point. The discussion will focus on how past prisoners navigate a world that stigmatizes them and holds them back.
Panelists from the Offenders Alumni Association will talk about the misery of released past offenders when they reenter the world. Their mission is to empower former offenders and their family members to actively engage in reducing crime and restoring communities.
Community members are invited to submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org before Sept. 25. The event will take place on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UABLHC/; due to technology restrictions, the lecture will be pre-recorded with a class.
