LETTER: Life after incarceration event is a partnership

I appreciate The Beachcomber’s coverage of the important upcoming event Re-Entry: Life After Incarceration, and I want to clarify a few key points (“Life After Incarceration: Racial justice group hosting evening of discussion,” Sept. 13). This presentation, Sept. 24 at the Land Trust Building, is the result of a collaborative effort by Vashon SURJ, the Backbone Campaign, the VISD Racial Equity Team and Sustainable Vashon. Its purpose is to educate and inspire islanders to show up for racial justice as it applies to incarceration and reentry of people of color. While we are asking for a suggested donation of $10 to $20, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We look forward to learning and responding together.
