Film/Discussion: Zero Percent

   Thursday, April 12 at 7pm               WITNESS THE RAREST OF PRISON FILMS...ONE WITH HOPE.
Zero Percent takes you inside the college classroom at Sing Sing Correctional Facility and chronicles the journey of several students and their families, while they transform their lives through education. The national rate at which men and women return to prison in the three years following their release hovers around 60%. That means roughly 3 in 5 of the men or women who leave prison will be back. Zero Percent is the story of the men of Hudson Link, an organization created by the inmates themselves that provides a full college degree through local universities. A discussion with Hudson Link graduates and staff will follow the film presentation

History of Hudson Link for Higher Education In Prison Based on evidence that education transforms lives and greatly reduces recidivism, Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison was formed in 1998 by a consortium of Sing Sing inmates, college educators, community leaders and dedicated volunteers. Hudson Link’s programs and services are entirely funded by private funding.
