This Summit will bring together former prisoners, advocacy organizations, faith based organizations, healthcare providers, activists, re-entry programs, parole/probation officers, and prison staff. Through panels and workshops, we will explore health and re-entry challenges facing persons who are incarcerated and persons re-entering our communities, including HIV, mental health issues, substance use, housing, employment, mentorship and educational programs.
