VII Photo is debuting a new documentary that takes a look at recently returned citizens and their journey of reentry.  Struggling with the stigma of incarceration, we take a glimpse into people’s struggles to secure housing, jobs, and other resources.  The effects of incarceration ripple through long after a person returns home and effects every aspect of their lives, to where they are allowed to live, restrictions in employment, and social judgement, the struggle to vote again, and so on.

The debut of the video is airing on Think Outside the Cell Foundation’s website.  Click  the link to watch the 10 minute video & hear the stories of some folks’ long journey home.  Check out more of their website to see their other projects & initiatives!
