Unique news event inside Spring Creek Correctional Center

 

Thank you to all who joined us for a fascinating and engaging community conversation with inmates, staff, and the public about preparing for life after prison conducted from inside Spring Creek. Led by reporter, Anne Hillman, we talked about what’s happening to prepare people for release, the prison’s role in the larger community, and how the two populations–inside and outside the wall–can connect.

The radio program from this event will air on Community in Unity.
 

Free public screenings of The Vietnam War


Thank you to the 500 attendees who joined us for two free community screenings held Sept. 13 in Anchorage and Sept. 14 in Palmer. It was a remarkable experience to screen the hour-special of The Vietnam War and share in facilitated discussion with Alaska Humanities Forum.

Ten years in the making, this immersive, multi-faceted narrative features personal testimony from many perspectives.
