Please join us for an evening McClendon Scholar in Residence event. Dr. Harold Dean Trulear, Professor, Howard University Divinity School, is co-author of Ministry With Prisoners & Families: The Way Forward. The USA has a higher percentage of its population in prison than any other nation. In addition to the misery caused by crime and mass incarceration, communities now face the dilemma of how to deal with almost 700,000 ex-offenders or “returning citizens” who are released from state and federal prison each year. The impact of mass incarceration and the needs of these “returning citizens” is an enormous problem in many different parts of Washington, DC.
A sandwich supper will be served at 6:00 PM in the Radcliffe Room.
