How do we welcome you back?

Following the lives of five people, the film Coming Home takes an intimate and powerful look at a state/community partnership called COSA (Circles of Support and Accountability) as it portrays the struggles and challenges of folks coming out of prison and the successes of this restorative justice model in repairing harm. Filmmaker Bess O’Brien will discuss how the restorative power of sharing one’s story and gaining trust from local community members moves people forward in their healing process and moves them away from reoffending.
