A Day in the Life

The "Reentry" displays were created by Demi Heiks of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council: “These stories were compiled from the various struggles reentry clients face in Lucas County."

The "Day in the Life" blurbs were culled from the experiences of prisoners and their families from across Ohio.

Note: These displays are available to any groups or organizations, for use in "prison awareness" educational efforts. Contact the Prison Stories initiative for details.
