EXPO-STL is Ex-incarcerated People Organizing and they know first-hand the issues faced by people returning to the community after prison. When the Federal government releases people, they often to go Dismas House, a residential program to aid in re-entry. It is meant to be a clean, safe place where people can begin to rebuild their lives. Dismas House has proven to be anything but that.
Listen to our podcast This is What Democracy Sounds Like to hear directly from residence and their families on the drug and violence ridden facility.
