August 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 20, 2022
Hang Time Mission:
Our goal is to enlighten, educate, de-conflict, and problem solve through discussion. We seek to provide specific ex-offenders, group and gang members diagnosed (and/or yet to be diagnosed) with Post and Present Traumatic Stress, options in mental health treatment. We provide assistance with social service navigation and serve as a sanctuary for its participants, offering a respectful, safe, and empowering atmosphere to share insight on day to day issues. Our long term effort is to reduce the level of violence in the community and recidivism among returning citizens through empowerment, community engagement, and building connections.
What is Hang Time:
It’s a two-hour long gathering every Tuesday evening in a comfortable centrally located space provided by The Burroughs Center. The unlikely brotherhood and sisterhood of ex-offenders, legal and community leaders grows stronger each week when they all come together for a meal and group conversation. The environment is always welcoming and an informal forum for discussion. These free-flowing discussions run the gamut, covering topics from politics, race relations, economics, cultural diversity, and bucket lists to the history of music to ways to conduct oneself during an encounter with the police.
