Saturday, July 13, 2019:

Join us on Saturday, July 13 from 5-7pm in the social hall of the Reformed Church of Highland Park (19 S. 2nd Ave, Highland Park, NJ) as verbal artists from around the region explore the emotions and experiences that intersect with incarceration and re-entry.

Tickets are $8 in advance via Eventbrite ( or $10 (cash) at the door. (No one will be turned away.)

Every ticket sold for “Word 1.0” will help us in our efforts to support our returning citizens, assisting with:

  • The registration fee for a recently released participant’s driver’s license or state ID.
  • A week’s worth of bus tickets so a returning citizen can get to her new job.
  • An Uber ride to get a participant to an addiction treatment center.
  • A pair of workboots so a participant can start his new construction job.
  • Or any of the other countless ways we help our participants start to get back on their feet.

All proceeds go to support NeighborCorps Re-Entry Services, a program of Churches Improving Communities. 

Parking is available in front of the church on South 2nd Avenue or in a lot behind the church off of Magnolia Street.
