Re-Envisioning Re-entry: Law Conference 2016
WHAT: "Re-Envisioning Re-Entry" is a free re-entry law conference and community building forum for legal service providers, advocates, community members, and formerly incarcerated people. The conference will bring you expert panelists with a focus on best practices and remedies available to help formerly incarcerated people overcome barriers to re-entry.
This year’s panels will include information and updates on Housing, Fines and Fees, Licenses and Certificates, and Bias in the Legal Profession.
