Dukkha from the Inside & Outside of Prison Walls
Dukkha from the Inside & Outside of Prison Walls

Since the 1980s, the US has been the leader in mass incarceration making up approximately 25% of the world’s prison population though its population is only 4-5% of the world. Harsh long sentences from our criminal justice system have kept more than 2 million bodies inside the prisons costing taxpayers more than $80 billion per year. Yet 83% of formerly incarcerated people (FIP) return to prisons within 9 years. FIP face so many obstacles when they are released, from housing to getting employment. Join us to experience the dukkha from inside as well as outside from the underserved population.

One of the “FIP” who spent 25 years in prison, Irving Relova has seen the harsh realities on both sides of the prison walls. He will share his stories of life inside and outside of prison, how Dharma found him and gave him a sense of hope, purpose, and understanding of what liberation truly means.
