Description

Investing in Futures: The benefits of postsecondary education in prison for your community

*Registration begins at 8 am, event begins at 8:30 am.

Access to postsecondary education for people in prison has the power to change individual lives and entire communities. Please join the Bank of America, Corrections to College California, and the Vera Institute of Justice for a briefing on the importance and significant benefits to the business community of expanding access to postsecondary education for people in prison. The discussion will frame the national and local conversations on this issue to highlight the implications for your community. Panelists will delve into findings from the Investing in Futuresreport and theDon't Stop Now report, focusing on the established economic benefits of higher education in prison—in areas such as public safety, employment, and state economy.

The conversation will also bring experienced perspectives from the Boston area together to break down the impact and the opportunities for every stakeholder involved.
