Beyond 144

In the Spring 2017 version of the “Prison Reform Project” GOVX course, 18 students participated in a groundbreaking project to highlight the stories of six returning citizens. Over the course of four months, students worked in groups of three to produce short documentaries profiling each individual’s struggles and triumphs. The ultimate goal of the project was to raise awareness of the challenges of societal reintegration, and the implications for individuals, families, and communities, as well as to inspire others to involve themselves in efforts to end mass incarceration.

Please visit the students’ Beyond 144 website to watch the documentaries and learn more about the inspiring but challenging stories of returning citizens.
