Walking through prison gates for the first time is a terrifying experience, regardless of the length of sentence. Walking back out again as a free individual can be just as terrifying, and traumatic. Voices Inside and Out talks with people who’ve actually walked through those gates, both those who’ve walked out again and with those who are still waiting for that day. We look at their personal stories, the strategies they used to get to where they are, their successes, and their failures. By looking at the common and unique themes from these individual stories we can create stronger support systems for prisoners, their families, and their communities once they reenter them.
Join co-hosts Catherine Latimer, Executive Director of the John Howard Society of Canada, and Lawrence Da Silva – a man who served 19 years in Canada’s penitentiary system, as they take a deeper dive into these issues.
