Laura’s works on Rehabilitation of Inmates prior to, and after their release. The goal is to aid in a smoother transition, and reduce the chances of returning to prison.
Laura works for UNO and is working under grants and private funding to create a new prison program for Nebraska and use across the country.
The origins of this program, from the original donor, is to pattern after the life changes of Malcom X. His change during prison and his adult life after is an inspiration for others to change their lives as well.
Women and youth prisons have other role models they learn about that stories are closer to their own.
Thanks to Laura for speaking about the Nebraska Prison System.
