Event description

Description

Shawna had done the crime and done her time. Now she had to re-enter society. She faced a dizzying array of requirements that she had to fulfill with almost no help and no money. Her challenges are similar obstacles faced by more than 4,000 men and women each year as they are released from incarceration in Arizona.

Join us to experience first-hand how the barriers of re-entry can become primary factors affecting our high rate of recidivism.

Participants in the simulation will assume the role of a formerly incarcerated individual and perform tasks in four 15-minute sessions with each session representing one week. By the end of this hour long, eye opening and frustrating activity, participants with have simulated a month in the life of someone who has recently been released from prison. You will encounter the same challenges faced by formerly incarcerated people as they try to complete their court ordered obligations as well as maintain daily life.
