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. We believe our participants' criminal convictions should not define who they are and that they should be able to move forward positively in their lives. As an alternative, we suggest using a phrase such as “individuals who were formerly incarcerated” to describe someone who has returned home from prison.
