After the successful April 2014 release of “Outcasts: Surviving the Culture of Rejection,” which examines the history and causes of recidivism and over-incarceration in Tennessee, the film was broadcast twice on East Tennessee PBS and was a 2014 YES Film Festival selection. We were pleased that Governor Bill Haslam, who is featured in the film, recently appointed a task force to examine recidivism and mandated sentencing reform. The report is due in July 2015.

Additionally, “Outcasts” has become part of the corrections law enforcement curriculum in community colleges and universities in East Tennessee.
