Dispatches from T.R.U.E.

Dispatches from T.R.U.E. will take you behind the scenes of a groundbreaking model at Connecticut’s Cheshire Correctional Institution: a unit that reimagines incarceration for young men aged 18-25. The unit’s name is an acronym for Truthfulness (to oneself and others), Respectfulness (toward the community), Understanding (ourselves and what brought us here), and Elevating (into success); the unit name was developed by staff to represent this goal and vision. Over the next few months you’ll hear from staff, mentors (people serving life sentences in DOC) living and working with the young men on the unit, the Vera team supporting the project, and young men (mentees) living in the TRUE community. We look forward to your comments and responses.
