Juan Haines of San Quentin News reports on TEDx San Quentin, which featured IPP Board Member, Dionne Wilson, and IPP Youth Development Specialist, Troy Williams.
Crime survivor Dionne Wilson told the audience how she found forgiveness for her husband’s murderer... Through the Insight Prison Project, she connected with people who had similar stories to hers.
“I learned that the key to my healing was connecting with people who had done great harm and were seeking their own healing,” Wilson said. “It was clear that more suffering wasn’t the answer; the key to healing comes from programs like VOEG (Victim Offender Education Group).”
“To society: I ask that you set aside what you think you know, and get curious. Don’t ignore the harm they’ve caused. But, be open to the fact that people change. I ask you be open to the fact that redemption is possible.”
