Course Description

Why do some people end up in prison instead of getting an honest job? Shouldn’t people who abuse drugs or alcohol take responsibility for their own bad decisions? If you’ve ever heard these kinds of questions (or asked them yourself), you won’t want to miss this 6-week online course that builds on a recent OLLI class titled Addicted, Homeless, or Imprisoned, that received rave reviews. You’ll learn about — and meet — people in our community who are dealing with addiction, homelessness, and incarceration. A series of speakers will share their experiences and research. We’ll explore the human and financial costs of our current situation, consider the history of our laws and look ahead to possible new approaches. Come learn about this misunderstood world. | Lecture (plus questions)
