RECHARGE Beyond the Bars Re-entry Game
RECHARGE Beyond the Bars Re-entry Game is an interactive card deck of 360 thoughtful, pre-designed questions and interactions which provide an opportunity for formerly incarcerated people to reflect on their lives and many aspects of their incarceration experience with one another, and with their family members and friends in a safe and fun way while they bond and grow in understanding, connection and empathy. This communication “game” has had significant impact on those who have utilized it, and has been enthusiastically embraced by even the most resistant people. Formerly incarcerated people who had been non-communicative for years found themselves effortlessly opening up and have been reported to have been communicative ever since participating in this game.
There are presently 2.4 million people incarcerated in America. Approximately 688,000 people are released each year. Most return feeling alienated and isolated from their families and communities. The RECHARGE Beyond the Bars Re-entry game is the world’s first product designed specifically to assist with the emotional, communication and social struggles of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated men and women. We need you to help us to bring them all the way HOME. Thank you so much!
