Mr. Watler discussed the overall state of reentry in New York and described the reentry program at the Justice Center; including the Harlem Parole Reentry Court and the new family reentry program. Rev. Ferguson gave a passionate and poignant presentation about his life and work addressing the issue of mass incarceration. His new self-published work: How I Became an Angry Black Man: From Prison to Pulpit chronicles his personal journey. He currently leads an outreach effort for the Interfaith Center of New York in partnership with the Harlem Community Justice Center that recruits local Harlem congregations to serve as places of welcome for the formerly incarcerated and their families.
