Raising My Voice (RMV) is a public speaking program for East Harlem prisoner reentrants, sponsored by our Outreach Partner, Circles of Support.
CHR just completed hosting a 12 week RMV program. 20 CHR Volunteers provided intense classroom mentor support.
Learning to tell their story – from offense to redemption – RMV participants:
– reckon wholeheartedly with their life story
– develop self confidence
– develop organizational skills
– inspire community support for criminal justice reform
– deter others from making the poor decisions they once made.
Come hear two of our RMV graduates tell their story at Questioning Faith following the 10:30 service. Please consider how your school, civic organization, book club, professional organization or faith-based group might secure a speaking engagement for an RMV speaker. To inquire about speaking engagements, contact Linda Steele firstname.lastname@example.org. Want to get involved in Prison & Reentry Ministry? Contact Richard Buonomo email@example.com.
