On April 13th, 2018, Omari Amili joined members of the Civil Survival team, Gina Castillo, Noel Vest, James Jackson, Tarra Simmons, Christopher Beasley, and Christopher Poulous at Washington State University’s Foley Institute for a panel discussion.
The title of the event was “Life After Conviction: The Role of Higher Education” and each panelist shared their personal stories of transformation in going from prison to college. Omari was honored to be among this specific group of peers as they included multiple formerly incarcerated Ph.D. candidates, two formerly incarcerated attorneys, and a formerly incarcerated Ph.D./University of Washington professor.
You can view video of the first panel discussion below. Unfortunately, the 2nd was not recorded.
