Description:

Yale undergraduates and graduate students regularly partner with local reentry nonprofit and social enterprise EMERGE Connecticut, Inc., located in the Wooster Square neighborhood of New Haven, CT. Whether through volunteer projects, semester-long internships, or employment, Yale students have learned immensely from supporting EMERGE’s unique, trauma-informed reentry model. This panel spotlights the complexities of an EMERGE-Yale network and explores the effects of mass incarceration and systemic inequity on  New Haven residents. The conversation will feature Maurice Keitt, a former Yale employee and now EMERGE Supervisor/Peer Mentor; Tabari Hashim, Assistant Supervisor and former crew member at EMERGE; and EMERGE Executive Director Alden Woodcock.
