Join the Criminal Justice Caucus and the Veteran’s Caucus for
PIZZA & PUPPIES!!!
A workshop facilitated by Nora Moran, Director of Dog Tags Initiative at Puppies Behind Bars and the puppies from the program!
WHEN: April 25 @ 12:15PM
WHERE: Columbia University School of Social Work (1255 Amsterdam Ave.) | Room 404
Nora Moran will provide an overview about how the dogs are raised in prison and then go off to work with wounded veterans, deeply affecting the incarcerated individuals, veterans, and dogs by providing a sense of connection and loyalty to those in need. During her time in prison, Ms. Moran raised puppies in the Puppies Behind Bars program, so she will speak about how the experience affected her life. Today Ms. Moran is an instructor in the prisons, as well as a trainer for the veterans who will be receiving the dogs, so she will demonstrate some of the commands that are taught specifically for veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
