Join us for a conversation with EnRICHment speaker Nick Horton!
Nick Horton’s talk will be an opportunity to experience the ‘power of proximity’ that Bryan Stevenson discusses in his book, presentations, and media appearances. Mr. Horton will relate some of the personal histories that provided the impetus for statewide criminal justice reform over the last decade, all of which have led to current efforts to pass the major Justice Reinvestment Legislative Package. Bryan Stevenson catalyzed these efforts when he visited Rhode Island in 2015 to attend a forum at Roger William University that focused on mass incarceration in the United States. Mr. Horton will narrate the ongoing campaign that stemmed from that event. He will then present a vision for ending mass incarceration in Rhode Island, rooted in his experiences working to keep his clients out of prison. His presentations will include guest speakers who have graduated successfully from the 9 Yards program talking about their own personal journeys.
