From HuffPost Live! Life After Prison: Struggling to Re-Enter Society

 

Video Description:

“The U.S. has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with more than 2 million people behind bars. After convicts are released, they often struggle to re-enter society. HuffPost Live explores the barriers faced by ex-convicts in America.”

During this talk, guest Michelle Alexander also highlights some of the ways structural racism within the criminal justice system is connected to legal disenfranchisement from the voting process.

I'm a Social Worker, Educator, and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
