Re-Entry After Incarceration
The odds of going back to jail or prison are high. What are the obstacles, struggles and even injustices facing someone trying to go straight? How many of the 700,000 annually released will make it? What is needed to better their prospects?
Dick’s guests are Jerome Dillard, Jail Re-Entry Coordinator for the Dane County Jail in Madison, Wisconsin and who was awarded the Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award for his work with re-entry 19 years after he himself was released from prison, and Linda Ketcham, Executive Director of the Madison Area Urban Ministry, a non-profit that has for many years and through several programs helped ex-offenders successfully return to the community.
