Listen to the Voice of Teri!

In February 2000, Nathalie Sorrell didn’t know what to expect when she created the posters announcing the new class in the GEO Lockhart prison. She certainly didn’t anticipate that 14 years later Truth Be Told would still be talking to Teri, a reluctant participant.

Truth Be Told has a new video, in time for Amplify Austin on March 20-21!

Help us raise funds! On March 20-21, Truth Be Told is participating in Amplify Austin’s I Live Here, I Give Here fundraiser. You can help by matching donations, creating your own fundraiser, spreading the word, and sharing with us why you support Truth Be Told.

Lee Thorsness, board vice chair, shares what makes Truth Be Told so special

In 2006, 48.8 percent of citizens re-entering society after prison were re-incarcerated. In 2007, the re-incarceration rate of Truth Be Told graduates was 24.3% — half that of the general population.

So Truth Be Told is moving this in the right direction; however, we need to continue to improve this rate.
