Description

Join Network for REAL Change as we host an informational evening of workshops focused on criminal justice reform and worship at the midnight hour. This is an open program. Stay for the entire program or attend any of the workshops that interest you. Presentations made by former prisoners will address topics of crime prevention, restorative justice, mass incarceration, family reunification, post-incarceration stress syndrome and the role of the faith community in criminal justice policy making. Listen to stories of people who are impacted by crime and punishment, learn from the experiences of reformed offenders, discover ways to engage public officials who have the power to effect change.
