Prison and the Poverty Trap

3.4.13 Carl Harris

Carl Harris is a personal friend of mine. His story involves being incarcerated for 20 years, temporarily becoming addicted to drugs, his wife having homeless stints and finally turning his life around while incarcerated in preparation to return home to his wife and daughters. His story is like the stories of many inmates and their families. The prison sentence has become a sentence for the entire family of an incarcerated loved one. The crippling effects of incarceration lead to a revolving door for many citizens returning from prison. Carl is determined to shut that door for good. To read his story and the plight of those facing long sentences, click here.
