Zach Brooke, a writer and regular contributor to Milwaukee Magazine, recently spent three days in a maximum security prison in Green Bay, where he got an up close look at the restorative program where prisoners come face to face with victims of criminal acts. Zach talked about his expectations going in, what happened in those three days in prison, and some of his takeaways from what he had witnessed. He also shared a poem written by one of the prisoners and talked about the humanity he discovered in the experience.
