Inside-Out at 20: The Power of Connection and Community

The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program celebrated its twentieth anniversary with a conference and commemoration event on October 19-21, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA. The first Inside-Out course was held in a Philadelphia jail back in 1997.

The theme of the conference was Inside-Out at 20: The Power of Connection and Community. The three-day meeting included a welcome reception, plenary conversations between practitioners and scholars, presentations and workshops from members of the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program network, and a celebration of our work together thus far.
