Saturday, October 23, 10 am–12 pm
An invitation from the Social Justice Action Team Criminal Justice Work Group:
Have you ever been denied an apartment even though you could afford it? Do you know how to use public transportation to access government offices? Do you know where and how to obtain a new government ID? People who have been recently released from prison may have answered “yes” to those three questions.
If you’re interested in experiencing how difficult it is to get around the roadblocks upon release from incarceration, come to our Re-Entry Simulation. You’ll be given your release-status profile with requirements to be fulfilled immediately upon release. Join us in King Hall on Saturday, October 23rd, 10:00 am–12:00 pm. The immersive experience will be followed by a light lunch with time to process the morning. It will be an enlightening, fun, and sometimes frustrating morning; you’ll leave more sensitive to the “life sentence” that follows those once incarcerated.
To join this eye-opening experience, please register by emailing Nancy Nonini at email@example.com.
