Lorig Charkoudian is a MD resident is a member of a group of volunteers for a nonprofit called Community Mediation Maryland. In 2014, she did a 67 mile run to help raise money for Baltimore families who are unable to afford the costly bus ride to see their incarcerated loved ones. The argument of this article was that the best way for adults to re-enter into society is with the help of their families. Community Mediation works to reunite families and repair bonds that inmates may lose with their loved ones after years behind bars. After being imprisoned and isolated for so long, it is hard for may to imagine the lives that they lived before incarceration. The group’s goal is to help these men “nurture a support system.” By meeting with the former inmates and their families and mediating conversations and arrangements for these people to assimilate back into society, the volunteers have found that they can repair relationships that appear to have died out, and provide the reformed citizens with the comfort and support of their loved ones so that they do not feel as if they are doomed to take on such a difficult task by themselves.
