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 the Strong Voices/Strong Subjects lecture series.
Since its inception, the series has drawn over 1,800 attendees. To our knowledge, Strong Voices is the nation’s only annual lecture series dedicated entirely to prisoner reentry.
