Strong Voices is held in Spring each year and features national, regional and local experts. In the past five years, we have 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)

Background: In 2013, Project 180’s national media audit reflected that prisoner reentry was not a topic of public discourse. In order to bring the issue of prisoner reentry out of the halls of justice and into the public domain, Project 180 began an annual lecture series that is entering its sixth season.

Since its inception, the series has drawn almost 1500 attendees and has featured speakers from state and local governments and over 20 institutions, nonprofits, and universities including University of South Florida, the Urban Institute, and The Rockefeller University. To our knowledge, it is the nation’s only annual lecture series dedicated entirely to prisoner reentry.
