Individuals coming out of incarceration face significant barriers to employment, and to thriving overall. This discussion, sponsored by DC Ideas Fest and moderated by the chair of the board of Changing Perceptions, will get the perspectives of leaders in the Aspire programs, as well as returning citizen entrepreneurs in different stages of their journey talking about the challenges they faced and the opportunities entrepreneurship has provided to them.
