Life After Prison event offers unique perspective

You’ve just been released from prison, having paid your debt to society, and it’s time to put your life back together. Now what?

Five Lakeland University student organizations have partnered to present Life After Prison, which will allow participants to feel the stigmas and barriers that formerly incarcerated individuals face upon release from prison.

Life After Prison is Thursday, March 28, from 5:30-7 p.m. in the event space on the second floor of the Younger Family Campus Center.

The event is divided into four weeks (roughly 15 minutes per week). Each week, participants will face challenges/tasks to complete before the week is over to avoid jail time. Tables will be set up around the event space representing different places where participants may have to go in order to complete their tasks.

The event is very interactive, so the more participants that attend, the more fun, challenging and rewarding it will be for everyone.

The event is presented by Lakeland’s Criminal Justice Club, Alpha Phi Sigma (the national Criminal Justice Honor Society), the Psychology Club, Psi Chi (the national Psychology Honor Society) and Cru.
