From Healing Broken Circles

The Center for Law, Justice & Culture is hosting a public panel discussion on the challenges of life after incarceration on Tuesday, Oct. 8, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in Bentley Hall 132.

The panel features guests from Healing Broken Circles, an organization based in the Columbus area that helps rehabilitate individuals who were imprisoned, and whose lives were forced to be defined by incarceration.

Healing Broken Circles fights to prove that no individual is defined by incarceration, and is more than a prison sentence. Their work includes helping to educate and train individuals to ready them for life outside of prison as well as raising awareness and fighting for just legislation.

“The growth of incarceration in the United States has led to a crisis in the criminal justice system,” says CLJC Director Haley Duschinski. “This panel provides a unique opportunity to explore the effect of mass incarceration on communities and lives – including the community-based workers advocating for reform, as well as formerly incarcerated individuals who are working to re-integrate into society.”
