A Note on Words and Their Meaning

At CEO, we believe that words matter, especially when it comes to how we talk about people. Sometimes people describe CEO’s clients using words like: ex-cons, convicts, ex-inmates, ex-offenders, felons, or ex-prisoners. At CEO we believe that although our participants have a criminal conviction, it shouldn’t define who they are and that they should be able to move forward positively in their lives. As an alternative, we suggest people use words like “formerly incarcerated individual,” or something similar, to describe someone who has returned home from prison.
