The forum about incarceration in Vermont starts with a brief overview of Vermont’s use of incarceration followed by a presentation of the Stories Project, which includes excerpts from letters of people who are incarcerated and a few video clips of people who were formerly incarcerated. Lastly, we hear from a panel which includes an array of perspectives connected to the criminal justice system followed by Q + A. The program concludes with a brief overview of progress that has been made in the movement and ways people can help.
