This Tuesday, Episcopal Charities hosted a screening of the film Hudson Link Story—a documentary profiling one of our partner organizations, Hudson Link for Higher Education. Hudson Link runs a college degree program for incarcerated individuals in several New York prisons, and the film takes viewers through the lives of several of these people as well as telling the story of the organization dedicated to helping them accomplish their dream.
Sean Pica, Hudson Link’s Executive Director answered questions after the screening. He touched on his own experiences in the criminal justice system, shared success stories from the men he has worked with, and explained the vital role that Hudson Link for Higher Education plays in New York prisons where federal and state funding for higher education have been completely eliminated. Episcopal Charities is proud to sponsor Hudson Link and the film screening was a terrific chance to showcase their work.
