Reflections on NCHEP 2016

For the first time since I began this work, I found myself surrounded by people who not only completely understood my reasoning and passions, but were actively pursuing them!

The National Conference on Higher Education in Prison was one of the most affirming and gratifying experiences as a scholar and practitioner that I could have hoped for. I had the opportunity to meet so many incredible people whose works I have read, cited, and studied. There were no egos…no reservations…and no hypocrisies. I left feeling vindicated, affirmed, and ready to continue this demanding work. After the most somber election I have ever experienced, I am happy to reflect on my visit to NCHEP and will continue to fight for what is right.
