Join us for the 2019 series, “Successful Strategies in Incarceration & Reentry,” on March 8th, April 5th, and May 10th. Tickets are available on Eventbrite now.
In 2013, Project 180’s media audit reflected that prisoner reentry was not a topic of public discourse. In order to bring prisoner reentry and its attendant ills—homelessness, poverty, unemployment, low literacy, public health, and public safety concerns—out of the halls of justice and into the public domain, Project 180 began an annual lecture series that has just completed its fifth year.
The series, Strong Voices/Strong Subjects, is held in Spring each year. Featuring national, regional and local experts, the series has explored
- Barriers to Successful Reentry (2014)
- The Implications of Disadvantage for Crime and Punishment (2015)
- Addiction, Reentry and Recidivism (2016)
- The Prison Experience (2017)
- The Effects of Incarceration and Reentry on the Family (2018)
Since its inception, the series has drawn almost 1500 attendees and has featured speakers from over 20 institutions, nonprofits, state and local government officials and universities including University of South Florida, the Urban Institute and the Rockefeller University.
