This Saturday night, join us for «Embracing the Returning Citizen: Restoring Dignity to the Formerly Incarcerated,» a panel discussion at Rodman Street Missionary Baptist Church. Listen to the stories of returning citizens, hearing their challenges and their triumphs. Learn how you and your congregation can support and welcome men and women who are returning to our communities from jail or prison.
Panelists include Minister Caliph Muab El and Brother Jerome Dillard, both of EXPO (Ex-Prisoners Organization); additional returning citizens from our communities; and Meghan Briggs, Director of Aftercare at the Foundation of Hope. The moderator will be the Rev. Buena Smith-Dudley of the PIIN Transformational Justice Task Force.
The event is sponsored by the Southwest PA Healing Communities Collaborative, the Foundation of Hope, Christian Associates of Southwest Pennsylvania, and the PIIN Transformational Justice Task Force.
Earlier in the day, Minister Muab El and Brother Dillard will offer a day-long training for returning citizens who would like to engage in reforming the criminal justice system. For more details, contact Scilla Wahrhaftig, (412) 361 1581, [email protected]
