Community Conversations with Susan Burton; Moderated by Babz Rawls Ivy, Editor in Chief of Inner-City News

Susan Burton’s story of overcoming overwhelming odds is an inspiration to people across the nation, particularly women who were formerly incarcerated or are in recovery from addiction. After a personal tragedy, Susan’s suffering resulted in a cycle inside the criminal justice system for nearly two decades. Susan persevered, founding A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project (ANWOL) in 1998. Susan is a recognized leader in the criminal justice reform and re-entry rights movements. Burton is the author of "Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women".

Light refreshments will be served.
