Are corrections institutions failing their mission? Many people say that prisoners are leaving the system as increasingly hardened criminals, not rehabilitated citizens. Harris will discuss the program she pioneered for first-time offenders, mixing tough love with job training to straighten out young lives, and will focus on how to reduce recidivism and the cycle of crime confronting numerous communities.
