Prison Fellowship, the nation's largest Christian nonprofit serving prisoners, former prisoners, and their families, is conducting a free screening of Prison Fellowship’s latest documentary ‘A New Day 1’, followed by a panel discussion exploring the challenges of reentry for Tennesseans who have served their time.
The event takes place Tuesday from 7-8:30 p.m. at The Word Empowerment Church at 7463 Pinewood Dr.
Every year, 600,000 men and women will return to our communities from incarceration. Because of their criminal record, they face significant barriers to housing, employment, and other elements necessary to live a productive life.
Participating in the Panel Discussion on Reentry:
Matthew Charles, Families Against Mandator Minimums, former prisoner released after the passage of the FIRST STEP Act
Lindsay Holloway, co-founder and executive director of Tennessee-based This is Living Ministries
Andrew Brashier, Faith-based Outreach manager with Prison Fellowship.
The public is invited to join the discuss on the barriers to safety and success for people with a criminal record and tangible ways to help your returning neighbors.
