The Biggest Lie Ever Told

Friday, June 21, 2019, 1:00 AM - 4:30 AM

Join us on June 20th to show your support for prison reform and learn more about the impact of mental illness on prisoners. Pete Earley, former Washington Post reporter, mental health advocate and bestselling author of Crazy and The Hot House: Life Inside Leavenworth Prison will be joining Ari Kohn, founder and president of the Post-Prison Education Program. More about the Post-Prison Education Program: The program offers hope and create opportunity for men and women returning to society from prison by providing wraparound services centered on post-secondary education. Students are offered the tools and human support needed to find gainful, meaningful employment, and break free from cycles of hopelessness, inter-generational poverty and imprisonment, and to become leaders for change.We believe that recidivism is a solvable problem and the rate can be virtually zero. We hope to clarify why our organizations methods work instead of current mainstream public policy. We must seek clarity, justice, and change for those engulfed in a worldwide silent epidemic: mental illness.
