|Subject:||Reentry Month Resolution - June 2019|
|In the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating June 2019 as “Reentry Month” in Pennsylvania.
Each year, more than 20,000 inmates earn parole or complete their prison sentence. Our Commonwealth is coming together to create better opportunities for these returning citizens to fully re-integrate into their communities. Reentry initiatives aim to positively change inmate behavior starting at reception through release to community supervision to reduce recidivism and victimization while also promoting public safety. Criminal records are not lifelong barriers that should prevent successful reentry and work in society.
Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution and recognizing those citizens who return to their communities and earn the opportunity once again to become contributing members of society.
