Prisons: Healing Through Culture and Creativity

The Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity is underway in Honolulu this week, and one thing they will be looking at is the connection between disabilities and prison incarceration.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa spoke with experts in the field of using culture and creativity to turn lives around.

“Healing our People, Healing Our Streets”, a dialog about alternatives to incarceration, is scheduled for the Church of the Crossroads, tomorrow, Wednesday evening, at 6pm.
