ENVISIONING THE WORLD AFTER INCARCERATION
After Incarceration is a diverse community of people impacted by systems of oppression. Many of us have been incarcerated. Some of us still are. We are students, professors, public defenders, peacekeepers, activists, and advocates. We draw upon our lived experiences to identify the many ways in which all lives intersect. Together, we are reimagining life After Incarceration.
This is about a way to engage the world with intention.
Through restorative practices we reconcile the conflict that comes from living in the contradiction of being free yet still confronting barriers and artificial divisions on a daily basis. We strip away labels. We affirm the value of every human being. We recognize ourselves within each other. We listen, learn, and collectively imagine.
Restorative Reentry is an opportunity to introduce people to ideas, to grapple with the significance of those ideas as a community, and empower each person to pursue a life full of purpose.
