Event offers ideas for future of released female inmates
The Illinois Dept. of Corrections Thursday is offering recently released inmates an opportunity to gather resources about their transition to life outside of prison. The Summit of Hope gathers departments from across the state in an effort to share ideas about reducing recidivism. Illinois Dept. of Corrections Assistant Director Gladyse Taylor shares ideas from the summit. We also speak with parolee Toni Evans about her experience transitioning back to her community.
