Full Circle 7-3-15 Incarceration and Liberation

Tonight on Full Circle we’ll be taking an unconventional look at our prison system.
We’ll be presenting you with positive aspects and creative solutions that have successfully helped formerly incarcerated men and women in the bay area. We’ll learn how prisoners are staying “mindful” while behind bars with the Prison Mindfulness Institute. We’ll explore the possibilities after one’s release with a new mentor-ship program. We’ll also find out about a unique project documenting inmates making positive change in their lives called “The Welcome Home Project.” All that and much more tonight on Full Circle.



Vernon Williams III from The Williams Group and Associates.  If you are interested in helping Vernon with his new mentoring program for returning citizens, please, feel free to contact him by email at vernon@twg.org
