(#41) Pharaoh’s Signet

Upon leaving prison, the biblical Joseph is given a job, and Pharaoh’s ring and chain and clothing to signify his rank and Pharaoh’s trust (Gen 41:42). This does not reflect the experience of many returning citizens who face unemployment at much higher rates than those without records.

Changing the odds upon re-entry is one aspect of joint liberation for all. Here are few facts regarding DC’s formerly incarcerated citizens.

NOTE to those counting the Omer. This recording is a little later than usual. We counted #40 on the evening of May 18 (Monday night). This post/recording is meant to accompany the count for Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.
