Family ReEntry invites you to an evening with the acclaimed actor and leading social activist, Danny Glover! Mr. Glover has gained respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts with a particular emphasis on Mass Incarceration and the Racial Disparity in America’s prison system.
Family ReEntry’s mission is to develop, implement, and share innovative, sustainable, cost-effective solutions to the unprecedented numbers of people involved in the criminal justice system.” Since 1984, Family ReEntry’s effective community-based programs have significantly reduced the likelihood that a client will re-offend, be re-arrested, or be re-incarcerated. Reductions in recidivism resulting from Family ReEntry’s cost-effective programs increase public safety, improve quality of life, and reduce the financial burden on taxpayers. In recent years, Family ReEntry has increased its impact by developing model programs, engaging in comprehensive research, and advocating for effective policy and practice in criminal justice.
Our programs comprise three integrated sectors:
1) Early Prevention – Youth Programs
2) Intervention – Domestic Violence
These programs provide a spectrum of services designed to help break the cycle of incarceration. Our goal is to help clients and their families make important behavior changes and access key community resources that will lead them to healthier, crime-free lives. Family ReEntry’s efforts are aimed at comprehensively and effectively addressing the enormous social problems related to crime, violence, abuse, and the unprecedented rates of costly incarceration.
This event is planned to educate and broaden community awareness of these huge issues. We have an exciting panel consisting of:
Colin McEnroe (Moderator) – Radio Personality from WNPR
Rev. Jeff Grant (Emcee) – Progressive Prison Project & Family ReEntry Board Member
Steve Lanza – Executive Director of Family ReEntry
Hon. Erika Tindall – Superior Court Judge & former Family ReEntry Board Member
