MOVEMENT FOR A CULTURE OF PEACE

 

Movement for a Culture of Peace presents the second of a two-part series on the correctional system in Delaware:

OUTSIDE: Critical Issues for Returning Citizens

Public Panel and Open Discussion

Trinity Episcopal Church
1108 North Adams St., Wilmington 19801
(parking on 11th Street)

The forum will address the following critical questions:

What is the Corrections system doing to prepare prisoners for re-entry in society?
What are the critical needs of returning citizens? How can we reduce recidivism?
Is the Probation system effective?  How can it be improved?
What are churches and nonprofits doing to help returning citizens? Are they effective?
Are there particular classes of offenders (such as those convicted of sex crimes) who have more difficult issues about re-entry?

 Panelists will include:

Bishop G.E. Gordon – My Brethren Ministries’ Reconnect Program
John Kornegay – Small Business Owner, Returned Citizen
Corie Priest, In-Reach Coordinator, Achievement Center
Priscilla Turgon, Executive Director, Project New Start

    Thanks.

    Sorry I cannot make it!

    I hope you get a good crowd and I hope somebody suggests that the way to end the violence is to end the war on drugs!
