    Event Description:

    Join us in September & October via Zoom to discuss Halfway Home: Race, Punishment, and the the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration, by Reuben Jonathan Miller.

    Each year, more than half a million Americans are released from prison and join a population of twenty million people who live with a felony record.

    Reuben Miller, a chaplain at the Cook County Jail in Chicago and now a sociologist studying mass incarceration, spent years alongside prisoners, ex-prisoners, their friends, and their families to understand the lifelong burden that even a single arrest can entail. What his work revealed is a simple, if overlooked truth: life after incarceration is its own form of prison. The idea that one can serve their debt and return to life as a full-fledge member of society is one of America’s most nefarious myths.
