A Deeper Look at Second Chances Event

At our last event, “A Deeper Look at Second Chances”, we spoke with three returning citizens about their experiences returning home from incarceration. They spoke about the importance of having support along their journey, how they are putting their best food forward, and obstacles they’ve faced since coming home. These panelists spoke honestly about their stories, and we are so grateful for the wisdom they shared!

Our panelists:

  • Curtis Patterson, from Thrive DC’s New Directions program
  • Meg Bailey, from CFLS’ Speakers Bureau
  • Gene Downing, Free Minds’ 2022 Congressman John Lewis Fellow
