Join us on April 9th at 11.00 am for a virtual panel discussion on corrections and re-entry from prison to society, featuring legislative, academic, and community perspectives. How can a prisoner's re-entry to the community better serve the interests and needs of both? be done successfully? What factors hinder or foster successful re-entry? What oversight efforts do state legislatures and agencies need to engage in to ensure re-entry programs fulfill their promises? Hear thoughts on these questions from Corrections Ombudsman Keith Barber, Former Representative Joe Haveman from Hope Network, Darryl Woods Sr., and Professor Ruby Tapia as they discuss legislative oversight and community efforts to better ensure success for returning citizens. Each panelist will have a brief presentation, followed by Q&A.
