KCRW’s podcast Greater L.A. hosted PCJP client Louis Pham in a story about how former lifers are welcomed back into the community.

When a lifer steps out of prison after so many years, often decades, they are smacked with an onslaught of smells, sights, and unfamiliar sensations. “I remember walking uphill for the first time since I went in,” says Louis Pham, who spent 24 years in prison and got out four months ago. “All prison yards are flat, so that feeling of walking uphill was like, whoa.”
