  An Evening with The Sentencing Project and author Sarah Burton

Our Executive Director, Ashley McSwain will be introducing and moderating at “An Evening with The Sentencing Project and author Sarah Burton” on June 14th, 2017 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Busboys and Poets.  

Ms. Burton is the founder and executive director of A New Way of Life, an organization devoted to helping recently released women rebuild their lives and will be discussing her new book “Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women”. She is a nationally renowned advocate of civil and human rights for those who have been involved within the criminal justice system. Her book speaks about her journey from tragedy to prison to recovery.

“Susan’s life story is one our nation desperately needs to hear and understand. This is a story about personal transformation and collective power. It is about one woman’s journey to freedom, but it will help free us all.” —Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

We are excited to join our Executive Director, The Sentencing Project and Sarah Burton for this remarkable and eye-opening event.
