Project 180's annual "Strong Voices Strong Subjects Lectures" will kick off March 5, 2021, via Zoom. The series resumes its eighth season with discussions about the Intersection of trauma, addiction and incarceration.

The series kicks off March 5 with keynote speaker Hank J. Brightman, Ed.D., criminologist, psychotherapist, research professor at the United States Naval War College, certified clinical trauma professional and graduate of the Assisi Institute's Archetypal Pattern Analyst Program. On April 2, a panel discussion with local trauma, addiction, and reentry professionals will be moderated by John Annis, senior vice-president for collaboration and impact at the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation. Finally, on May 7, a formerly incarcerated individual will share the ways in which trauma, addiction, and incarceration have affected their life journey.

The only annual lecture series in the nation dedicated specifically to prisoner reentry, Strong Voices aims to end harmful myths about those who are or have been incarcerated; introduces reentering men and women to mainstream life; and promotes empathy, compassion, and bonding between diverse groups of citizens.
