July 2017 is Georgia Reentry Awareness Month
If you are formerly incarcerated, have a loved one who has been impacted by the system or is a supporter of second chances YOU ARE INVITED TO THIS FREE LUNCHEON!
The deadline to RSVP is Thursday, the 27th. Please call 706 593-5382 with your name and the # of people attending. The attire is business casual to dressy.
FYI: This event is from 11:30a-1:30p EST NOT at 10:30a as stated on the Facebook event page. Because the address of the event is in Phenix City, Facebook automatically set the time to Alabama time which is usually an hour behind GA not knowing that Columbus and Phenix City are both on Eastern Standard Time. Therefore, if you come at 10:30am, you will be one hour EARLY for the event. Again, the event starts at 11:30am Columbus time.

This event will close out our Reentry Awareness Month activities for the month of July. Please come out to this luncheon to support us as we fellowship together and hear a great program that will be filled with great words of encouragement meant to empower you to stay encouraged, to inspire you to do great things, to remind you that you are NOT your past and despite your past and current circumstances, God still has a plan for you. Why? Because even broken crayons can still color and create beautiful masterpieces! Attendees are asked to dress BUSINESS CASUAL to DRESSY. You must RSVP by 7/27/17.

We are so proud of our founder, Waleisah! Out of hundreds of applicants from across the country, she was 1 of 36 formerly incarcerated leaders accepted into the 2017 "Leading with Conviction" Cohort, an intensive national leadership & advocacy training program sponsored by JustLeadershipUSA in New York. She has proven that she is NOT her criminal record and that having one doesn't stop you from being an effective leader! It has only enhanced her ability to become an amazing criminal justice reform advocate! We are glad that she is using her conviction to LEAD!
