In 2015, June was declared National Reentry Awareness Month. To bring awareness to reentry in America, we will be posting reentry stories throughout the month as part of our The Road to Reentry blog and vlog series. You will hear from people who have returned home from jail or prison. In these stories, they will share with us their reentry experiences, good and bad. And from their stories, we hope to demonstrate the importance of reentry supports, not only from federal and local governments, but also family and friends. Clips will be posted to our social media and will link to the full vlog or blog post located here. We hope you stay tuned and share!
UPDATE (1/2018): We were not able to launch this series, but may repurpose some of the content in the future. Stay tuned. Thanks!
Welcome to the Blog!
Meet the writer of the most recent post on the blog:
My name is Tara Debek, and I'm writing for the One by 1 blog to promote a system of justice and incarceration that better serves our citizens. I believe that we are doing a significant disservice to those who are victims of a broken criminal justice system, and through the work of organizations like One by 1 we can work towards a better future.
One by 1 and its volunteers, staff, interns, partners, clients, supporters, and friends are all welcome to post on our blog. Email us with your ideas!
