Family contact and strong community bonds are vital.Dean Williams (Colorado DOC, Executive Director), Amber Pedersen (Colorado DOC, Policy Advisor), Wanda Bertram (Prison Policy Initiative), and Zo speak about why it's critical to lower barriers to family contact and how Ameelio's Connect platform helps DOCs further their rehabilitative mission.
