Join us at our second Latino Reentry Network seminar "Barriers to Reintegration: A Panel Discussion"
Men and women reentering from incarceration many times face tremendous barriers imposed by social structures that prevent them from achieving their goals, and help perpetuate the cycle of poverty and incarceration. Join us in our panel discussion with community stakeholders representing the areas of human resources, higher education, and workforce development. Let's work together to decrease barriers and increase our partnerships towards a more inclusive Boston.
