“Life After Prison: The Invisible Barrier Can’t Be Washed Away”: from the perspective of an inmate

While searching the Net for recent criminal justice articles for my podcast OneMother’sVoice, I came across this article that offers a grim yet realistic view of what awaits those released back into their communities.

It has particular relevance for me because I have two grandsons in post-release. I worry about how they are coping with the challenges that face them.

If you have a loved one recently released, the article can help you understand (and maybe, help with) the treacherous transition.

If you are on release, it will remind you of the hurdles that you must overcome to keep from going back in.

The bottom line is DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED; the road may be long, but with persistence, it can take you where you want to go.
