In the U.S. we imprison one out of every one hundred Americans! "Long Road Back" is a wrenchingly powerful portrayal of the agonizing difficulties facing these people coming out of prison. More important, it shows how dedicated persons and organizations are helping people make it in spite of their problems. I wish every congregation would watch this video and ask what God wants them to do.
The Long Road Back documents the agonizing difficulties facing Americans who come out of prison, regardless of their background, education, or support structures. Follow Jamie, a young woman who went into prison at 19 and came out at 30, as she job hunts, struggles to sustain relationships, and reflects on how much easier life was on the inside.

Hear from the folks working on the front lines of reentry discuss the obstacles returning citizens encounter and how churches, non-profits, and communities can lend a hand.
