The Necessity of Prison and Reentry Education
June 5, 2022 @ 11:15 am - 12:00 pm
Een Jabriel, currently acting as the Regional Manager for The Petey Greene Program of NJ, will be the first speaker in the series “After Incarceration: Bending the Moral Arc Toward Justice in the season of Juneteenth.” He is responsible for recruiting and training college students and community volunteers to go inside of state and federal correctional facilities to tutor incarcerated students. Jabriel has been directly impacted by the criminal justice system and was able to take advantage of prison education through NJ STEP. This experience later led to his graduation from Rutgers University in 2016. Learn how the presence of educational resources within the correctional system not only changes the lives of the ones directly impacted by incarceration but the people those individuals encounter on a day to day basis. College classrooms on the inside can be a direct bridge to a university education on the outside. Location: NPC Assembly Room.
