On June 24th, Thrive DC & Free Minds co-hosted a panel discussion featuring three returning citizens. The conversation was free-ranging – what was it like coming home after incarceration? What supports helped you make that transition? What is it like negotiating telling someone about your status vs not telling them?
It was an open, honest, discussion of the challenges and barriers facing returning citizens when they come and have to deal the with the social stigma of their incarceration. We appreciate the vulnerability of our panelists, and thank them for their time!
