IMAN Atlanta: Investing in Lives Beyond Incarceration Part 2

Event Description

On July 29, community members, behavioral health professionals, lawyers and law professors, mothers, and returning citizens themselves attended ‘IMAN Sessions: Investing in Lives #BeyondIncarceration’. Discussion revolved around IMAN’s Green ReEntry program, and ways it can continue to offer support to returning citizens.

Green ReEntry provides support to formerly incarcerated individuals facing barriers to employment through vocational and life-skills training and job readiness.

Community members connected and shared information. It became evident that the issues around incarceration and reentry require continued committed, grassroots community space. One day was not enough to address and unpack these issues. This inspired IMAN Atlanta to plan IMAN Sessions: Investing in Lives #BeyondIncarceration Part 2, for September 23rd.

At IMAN Sessions: Investing in Lives #BeyondIncarceration part 2, IMAN Atlanta will introduce its second Green ReEntry cohort, share the action plan created from Part 1, and continue to preserve the safe space desired by community members of all backgrounds.
