Strong Returns hosted its first campus event last week at Georgetown University in Marc Howard‘s Prisons and Punishment course. We shared our mission of making prison reform the Millennial generation’s issue in the 2016 election, as well as our mini-documentaries about William T. Lawson, who was incarcerated for over thirty years.
The best part of the event were speeches from three returning citizens who work to make positive change in Washington, D.C.:
1. William Lawson, who was featured in an oral history posted earlier:
2. Ricky Bryant, a member of D.C.’s National Homecomers Academy:
3. Elvin Slim Johnson, also a member of D.C.’s National Homecomers Academy:
Stay tuned for the dates and locations of Strong Returns’ upcoming campus events.
