As justice-involved individuals prepare to reenter communities, they face a variety of challenges and collateral consequences that can prevent successful reentry. Collateral consequences include the regulatory and legal hurdles that limit or block access to employment, housing, voting, education, and other rights – and can be the root causes of crisis situations. To effectively engage and serve justice-involved people, it is critical to understand the range of barriers and collateral consequences. Our speakers bring their own lived experience of the criminal justice system to discuss strategies to understand, identify, and support justice-involved individuals facing collateral consequences.
