ARC hosts a bi-weekly Fireside Chat series to communicate with our audience about how topics in our world impact people who are incarcerated or have experienced incarceration. With Executive Director Sam Lewis as host, we simulcast the one-hour program over Facebook Live, Twitter, and YouTube.
You’ll hear from speakers who themselves have been incarcerated during a lockdown, who know firsthand what some of our most vulnerable community members are experiencing right now during the coronavirus pandemic. We will discuss what ARC is doing to keep our community members (including those who are currently incarcerated), staff, and allies healthy during this time. We’ll also share with you the advocacy work we are engaged in to ensure that our brothers and sisters on the inside are safe and treated with compassion.
