For the past fourteen years Dr. Roberts has been actively involved in various aspects of community building programs across the country, in Europe and the former Soviet Union.
Roberts left a twenty-year career in dentistry to devote himself to social reform and, eventually, the creation of a revolutionary program for ex-offenders called Project Return. Democrats call his work social responsibility while Republicans call it fiscal responsibility. Atheists call it moral responsibility while the religious call it redemption. Academics call it service to the community, while judges call it crime fighting and corporate CEO's call it practical. It is simply a way of solving the problem of crime without doing further harm.
Dr. Roberts, has been much in demand as an instructor at workshops and conferences across the country and has been interviewed on numerous radio talk shows, including National Public Radio. Additionally, he has made numerous of appearances on various newscasts and television talk shows on CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX, including the Ivanhoe nationally syndicated news broadcast. Dr. Roberts and Project Return recently received notable mention on the front page of the New York Times and were the subject of a feature article on the front page of the LA Times. This, in turn, has sparked interest from CBS News in New York and Washington, DC, 60 Minutes, 60 Minutes II, 20/20, and 48 Hours.
