The Stigma We Carry
An Evening with the Formerly Incarcerated, Drug Addicts and Society’s Castaways

This event has passed.

Can we imagine ourselves surviving incarceration? When we see the homeless and addicted on the streets, can we imagine being them? Do we believe the homeless and addicted will ever live and thrive surrounded by family and community? Do we realize that they already do?

Our lack of identification with people often serves to keep them on the margins and locked out of opportunities – opportunities we take for granted. And yet. Despite all odds, millions of people have rebuilt their lives and now live as we do. It’s time for those of us who have been there to “come out of the closet”.

Join us for an evening of stories and hear about how so many of your friends and neighbors have overcome addiction, trauma, and the stigma of incarceration, and how their experiences serve to make all of us more resilient.
