Carol Hinds on “Re-Imagining Rehabilitation: A Mother’s Story”

September 29, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Carol Hinds is the parent of an inmate at California State Prison-Sacramento (New Folsom Prison) and has served as secretary on the prison’s Inmate Family Council for the past 14 years. Her son is serving a 25-to-life sentence through 2025. In addition to her work with the Council effecting policy change and supporting inmate families, she has spoken before the California legislature and at national conferences, sharing her personal story about the positive and healing effects that art, music, and creative writing have had on her son and others in the prison. Hinds has become a strong advocate for prison arts programs and her story challenges audiences to think broadly about what an agenda for restorative justice might look like. She is cited in Paths of Discovery: Arts Practice and Its Impact in California Prison (Brewster 2012). Common Reading Stamp available.
