WFYI Public Broadcasting in Indiana is announcing a new board game it helped create that provides insights into the challenges former inmates face. The project was developed with Volunteers of America-Indiana and John P. Craine House, an alternative sentencing program for nonviolent women. “Checkpoints and Challenges” provides role-playing situations that newly free inmates face. It’s designed for use by re-entry programs, correctional systems, congregations with prison ministries and secondary and higher educational programs. It’ll be sold starting Sept. 30 on the volunteer group’s web site for $32.
