Our fishbowl discussion series, titled I BECAME, allows you to hear in-depth conversations about women's reentry experiences. This session will be led by our Executive Director, Ashley McSwain, with members of our Speakers Bureau.⠀ ⠀
This is an opportunity for those in reentry work to hear human stories that will inform their work, and it is a chance for clients to hear stories that may parallel their own experiences, reinforce a sense of community, and prompt their thinking about their own journey. Join us!
