Listening to the Voices of Justice-Involved Students & Alumni
Changing lives, developing leaders, building communities
Friday, October 17th, 12 pm - 4 pm
Columbia University, Room TBD
Join us on October 17th for a half-day symposium to explore the power of education to change the lives of youth and adults with histories of justice-system involvement. Through personal storytelling and dialogue, we will explore how and why education reclaims lives and cultivates leaders, and what we can do expand these transformational educational opportunities.
Students and alumni with histories of justice involvement, along with students without histories of justice involvement, educators, reentry/education program staff, advocates, policy makers, and anyone interested in learning about education's transformative role are invited to participate.
RSVP INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE POSTED SOON. Questions about the symposium? Email: NYRENsymposium@gmail.com
