Surviving Incarceration and Reentry
We turn an Ethical Lens on “Surviving Incarceration and Reentry.” What are the personal, spiritual, and social resources needed for people to remain whole when they end up in prison? How can people best make it through our retributive system, reset their lives, and reenter a society where they can flourish? What can be done to humanize our justice system so that it nurtures the best in human personality, personal responsibility, and community support?
