Public Advocates in Community re-Entry will host its third annual fundraiser, “Artspoken: Expression Without Reserve,” at 6 p.m. Oct. 22 on the PACE Facebook page.
The fundraiser will include stories from people who have been impacted by incarceration so others can learn about the difficulties related to reentry. There will also be art made by people impacted by incarceration.
