Life After Life in Prison Photos by Sara Bennett
March 28 @ 6:15 pm - April 26 @ 8:15 pm
Life after Life in Prison examines the lives of four women as they return to society after spending anywhere from 17 to 35 years in New York State’s maximum security prison for women. While each of their stories is unique, they illuminate many of the problems inherent in today’s criminal justice system.
