| December 10, 2013

In this article, GPPF discusses the significance of offender rehabilitation, quoting convicted murderer Aakeem Woodard.

“It is impossible to let a person go five-to-six years in prison and expect that person to rehabilitate himself and begin that process six months before you come home.”

GPPF also authored the article “Tearing Down Invisible Prison Walls Created by Poverty,” in which they address the issue of offender re-entry into society.
