At Weld, we believe that words matter, especially when it comes to how we talk about people. Sometimes people describe Weld’s members using words like: ex-cons, convicts, ex-inmates, ex-offenders, felons, or ex-prisoners. We believe our members' 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.
