[vc_row][vc_column][mk_fancy_title size=”24″ font_family=”none”]A Conversation on Restoring Human Rights Post-Incarceration[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537282022042{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]One of the Central Park Five, Yusef Salaam, joins us for a compelling dialogue regarding the restoration of human rights post-incarceration. In partnership with The Marshall Project, the Center for Civil and Human Rights will host a conversation on the reintegration of formerly-incarcerated people.

The panelists will join Salaam in discussing the impact incarceration has on mental and emotional health, lifelong earning potential, and relationships. Also, the discussion will consider models that can lead to successful transitions and prevent recidivism.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”Panelists” title_align=”separator_align_left”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537216204714{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Yusef Salaam, Activist, One of the Central Park Five[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537296316890{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537216244352{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Carroll Bogert, President of The Marshall Project[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”34763″ img_size=”medium” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.themarshallproject.org/”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537282035075{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Jonathan Barry Blocker, Southern Poverty Law Center[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”35319″ img_size=”medium” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://www.splcenter.org/”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537282048176{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Moderated by David Lee Windecher, Founder of RED (Rehabilitation Enables Dreams)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537295985078{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]
