Community in Unity heads to Nome

In the next installment of Community in Unity, Alaska Public Media is heading to the Anvil Mountain Correctional Center in Nome. What will we be talking about? The importance of community connections.

Being incarcerated is hard. So is being released. How are people in prison connecting with their communities and preparing for what’s next? What’s happening outside of prisons to help make the transition more successful for everyone in the community?
Join us for a conversation inside Anvil Mountain Correctional Center with inmates, staff, and other community members to learn about life inside the prison walls and ways to help people succeed on the outside.
The moderated community conversation will be held in the prison’s gym. Light refreshments will be provided.
Please bring a photo ID, and be prepared to check your belongings before going through security.

Community in Unity is Alaska Public Media’s community dialogue series. So far, the program has traveled to the Spring Creek Correctional Center in Seward, the Fairbanks Correctional Center, and the Goose Creek Correctional Center in Mat-Su.

We hope to see you there.

When: Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2018. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. The conversation begins at 1 p.m. and will last an hour. It will be recorded for broadcast.
