Join the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Right on Crime and Prison Fellowship for “The Restoration Series” film debut in Texas, followed by a discussion about second chances post incarceration.
Though America is home to only 4 percent of the world’s population, we house more than 20 percent of its prisoners. An overreliance on incarceration wastes taxpayer dollars, fails to make communities safer, and burdens hurting families. The Restoration Series follows the story of a man who spent nearly half his life in the prison system. While incarcerated, he participated in the Prison Fellowship Academy, a restorative in-prison program. Watch Jonathan take his first steps on the pathway of his second chance after his release.
Lunch will be provided, so please RSVP.
