Stories from the Inside: A College Education in Prison

Date: Thursday, February 13, 6:00 pm
Location: Lindenbaum Pavilion

Join the Central In Action Team, along with Rabbis Angela Buchdahl, Nicole Auerbach, and Hilly Haber, for a night of revelation and storytelling as we launch Central’s newest advocacy campaign: the reinstatement of the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) for men and women who are incarcerated in New York State.

This bill would grant thousands of men and women access to higher education, a measure which has proven to reduce recidivism rates and increase safety within prisons.

Together we will learn about the ways in which access to higher education in prison has the power to transform lives. Special guests will include Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., Sean Pica, Executive Director of Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison, and Ivelisse Gilestra, Community Organizer at the College and Community Fellowship.

Snacks and beverages will be served.
