We’ll have a conversation with prison reform activist, Susan Burton, about her book Becoming Ms. Burton.
Ms. Burton documents her life from the death of her son, to her spiral down into drug addiction, to her successful work now running the nonprofit, A New Way of Life. The group helps women leaving prison re-enter society. What conversations should we be having about reforming prisons from the inside out?
Susan Burton, founder of A New Way of Life Re-entry Project, and author of Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women
