Dr. Christina Zaccarini 

Prof. Zaccarini has been a full-time history professor at Adelphi for twenty years, with publications in American history specializing in women and culture. Prof. Zaccarini works with Network Support Services, and especially with Mr. Nahshon Jackson, Outreach Coordinator, to create a database capturing the experiences of those reentering society while seeking to assist them in their efforts.

Nahshon Jaskson

Mr. Nahshon Jackson, Network Support Services Outreach Coordinator, brainstormed with Prof. Zaccarini to come up with the idea for the Mindfulness Resolution Project and he provided tremendous insight and inspiration for students. Mr. Jackson works tirelessly to connect Prof. Zaccarini to Network clients, and his knowledge of mindfulness and the criminal justice system is exceptional. Without Mr. Jackson, there would be no Mindfulness Resolution Project and no documentary!
