The journey home from prison is a lot longer and more challenging than the bus ride back to the neighborhood.
Finding the way to freedom after incarceration can feel like an obstacle course. Locating housing and employment, overcoming old habits and facing new challenges, the stigma of being an “ex-offender,” and the repair and renewal of supportive and healthy relationships with families and friends can be overwhelming
Ray knows that the path to freedom has to start before those first steps outside the electrified double fence. He’s done some work on himself and learned some powerful tools inside, through life skills and self-help programs. Tonight, alone in his cell, his journey to freedom begins.
Join Ray as he invites the most important people from his life to speak with him in a Council circle. He will call in the voices of friends and family who have powerful stories, reflections, and resources to offer. What they have to share will open Ray’s heart and provide the nourishment and support he needs to step into the next chapter of his life—and truly leave prison behind.
