The Alternatives to Violence program works with prisoners while in prison to teach them non-violent ways to deal with conflict in their lives.  Violence we encounter in our everyday life  can be verbal and emotional.   Violence knows no class, racial, economic or geographical boundaries.  Over ninety percent of prisoners eventually return to society -- from a prison experience that encourages violence.   Today we will hear from a former prisoner, Herb Blake, who participated in this program and who gained valuable perspectives on his own life and the goals for his own future from being involved with Alternatives to Violence.
