The 3rd Annual Reentry Awareness Month, will kick-off June 3rd at Noon at the Battle Monument Park, in Trenton, NJ. The event is Co-sponsored by The Campaign to End the New Jim Crow, From the Block to the Boardroom, and The Mercer County Reentry Task Force. On June 10th, 17th, and 24th, we will be holding workshops, seminars, and screenings. Service providers for Returning Citizens will be present to discuss education, employment, entrepreneurship, housing, and expungements to raise awareness about the plight of our Returning Citizens who are released from prison. As citizens in the community, we have a social responsibility to assist with the transition in the community and back home. They are our sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends. The opportunity to live a productive life post-incarceration is paramount to successful reentry and to reduce recidivism.
