A Conversation With Piper Kerman

October 6 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us as we attend A Conversation with Piper Kerman presented by River’s Edge Ministry. The purpose of this event is to educate citizens about criminal justice reform and inspire grass-roots action towards real-world progress.  

The program will feature powerful keynote speaker Piper Kerman.  Ms. Kerman spent 13 months in federal prison for drug trafficking.  Her subsequent best-selling book inspired a successful comedy/drama cable television program, but she is a serious activist with a fact-based perspective.  Ms. Kerman now dedicates her time and her resources to public education on re-entry, training and workforce preparedness. She focuses on inequalities endured by the poor and people of color while in prison and after release.
