Join us for a screening of Life On Parole, which is a look behind-the-scenes of Connecticut’s efforts to change the way parole works and reduce the number of people returning to prison. In collaboration with the New York Times, the film follows four former prisoners as they navigate the challenges of their first year on parole. It first aired on Frontline. The film will be followed by a discussion with former parolees, parole officers, and one of the producers of the film.
Presented by the Institute for Municipal & Regional Policy at Central Connecticut State University, the UConn Humanities Institute and Hartford Listens.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 28, 6:00 PM
