Shattering Stigmas: The New Faces of Reentry
- August 18 @ 6:00 pm
As we consider what it means to give second chances, we must first understand the stigmas associated with having a criminal record and how these stigmas hinder full reintegration into society. One of the stigmas directly impacted individuals often deal with is the stigma of being treated as though they are the same person they were in the past.
Please join the Southern Center for Human Rights for a conversation with directly impacted individuals who have not only proven that they are not their past but are perfect examples of stigmas being shattered. They continue to shatter stigmas that say that directly impacted people cannot be successful, productive, and positive individuals in society. When given opportunities to be successful, directly impacted individuals can be lawyers, doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, organizers, CEOs and so much more. Join us for a conversation with individuals who are the NEW faces of reentry, faces that have and will continue to shatter stigmas.
