Now more than ever individuals housed in US prisons need to be digitally literate if we want to increase their chances of successfully transitioning back into the community. The panelists will demonstrate why, consider the obstacles and talk about work being done to expose people in prison to the tools they will need to engage in activities ranging from job searching to getting access to health and social services.
