Giving back: RCI’s Restorative Justice Program helps inmates help others

from Christine Won's article in the Journal Times:

On a recent Friday morning, 13 inmates at the Racine Correctional Institution in Sturtevant diligently worked on their needlework, their nimble fingers pulling together tiny stitches or weaves. The fruits of their toil lay strewn about the tables: a Mickey Mouse look-alike, a doll, random bears and other stuffed animals, as well as scarves, hats and more slowly took shape.

Those bears and lamb pillows have made their way into little hands around the community, and those mittens and gloves will keep others warm this winter.

Charity Crafts is part of the prison’s Restorative Justice Program, through which inmates find ways to give back to the community, according to Tommie Thomas, RCI program supervisor.
