I Am More Than My Criminal Record is a storytelling initiative, created by the Calgary John Howard Society (CJHS), that aims to reduce the stigma associated with a criminal record, raise awareness of the discrimination faced by those with a record, and show how that can impact reintegration.
Through I Am More Than My Criminal Record, individuals with a criminal record share their personal experiences to show who they truly are and help readers connect to the individual.
