In Community Forum, Inmates at Fairbanks Correctional Center Talk About 'Life in Limbo'

Megan Edge/Alaska Department of Corrections

Alaska Public Media Solutions Desk reporter Anne Hillman presents a report from its Community in Unity series featuring inmates at the Fairbanks Correctional Center talking with members of the public about their life in limbo behind bars. 

Some people stay at Fairbanks Correctional Center for a few days. Others are at the pre-trial facility for years. Most of the inmates are living their lives in limbo — awaiting their trials and their futures. During Community in Unity: Life in Limbo, inmates, correctional center staff and other community members sat together for an open conversation about the justice system, day-to-day life at FCC and what’s happening on the outside to help people who are released.
