The effects of incarceration rarely end when individuals return home. Rather, the collateral consequences continue to take a toll, especially on families. New research from Harvard sociologist Bruce Western and his team sheds light on those challenges and the sources of support for returning citizens and their families. Please join the Charles Koch Foundation, Harvard Kennedy School Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, and the J.C. Flowers Foundation as we discuss these findings and determine where to go from here.
