We hear from two Open Society Institute community fellows on a mission to restore dignity to those living in or returning home from prison.

Kanav Kathuria will work with local farmers to add fresh fruits and vegetables to the menu at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women. And Elyshia Aseltine, who teaches criminal justice at Towson University, will establish a center to support students with criminal records as they pursue their education.
