With only five percent of world’s population, America imprisons 25 percent of the world’s incarcerated population. Our carceral state imposes a disproportionate toll on the country’s poor, black and Hispanic people, wreaking havoc on those imprisoned, their families, neighborhoods, and entire communities. One international health scholar labels mass incarceration a contemporary “epidemic.” Yet almost all those sent to prisons and jails to be punished will eventually be released back to communities that are themselves most often characterized by restricted opportunity and systemic inequality. Upon their release, formerly incarcerated people are often denied opportunities, their efforts significantly hampered by existing legal and practical barriers that perversely increase the likelihood that they will fail, re-offend and be re-incarcerated. Join us for a day-long conference that will examine the immediate and long-term challenges confronting people released from prison and the legal and social barriers that impede successful reintegration.
