This Wednesday, March 17, 2010, the Task Force, in partnership with The Reentry Institute at John Jay College and The Fortune Society, will hold the 2nd 2010 Harlem Reentry and Public Safety Forum. This forum will focus on healthcare for reentrants. For more information or to RSVP, click here.

This week Storycorps broadcast a timely piece on one reentrant's life threatening illness and another's selfless act ("I wanted to do something good in my life for the first time. . . All I've done is like, mischief"). In their own words, Felix Aponte and Rob Sanchez tell Storycorps how their shared experience as formerly incarcerated men developed into a friendship that ultimately saved Rob Sanchez's life. Listen to the short piece here.
