This is a podcast episode titled, Episode 46: Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic - Chris Purnell. The summary for this episode is: Did you know that nearly half of Marion County’s justice-involved return to prison?

In this episode of the Skill Up Build Up podcast, Kofi cracks into the realism of a broken criminal justice system with Chris Purnell, executive director of the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic. The conversation centers on the necessity of hope for the justice-involved, and the role recidivism and expungement play in that process.
