The alternatives to prison are few and far between. And after serving time, the options for getting back on your feet are even worse. Finding food, a job and a place to live with a criminal record can become an almost impossible task. On this edition of Making Contact, women are building their own support network after being released from prison. We’ll hear A New Way of Life and the New Underground Railroad, a documentary by Chris-Moore Backman.

Susan Burton, A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project Executive Director and Founder; Michelle Alexander, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness author; Alika Savage, Yolanda Brown, Renee Levi, Maisha Bailey, Sabrayiah DeMoss, Samantha Jenkins, A New Way of Life residents.
