Reentry week spotlights civil legal aid

May 10, 2016 5:27 pm
On April 24th the U.S. Department of Justice kicked off the first-ever National Reentry Week. Voices saw an opportunity to add to this important effort by highlighting the intersections between the criminal and civil justice systems and drawing media attention to the crucial role of civil legal aid in reentry. We asked JusticeVoices Network members to seize this media opportunity by writing op-eds and pitching stories to local media about the innovative reentry work they are doing in their communities.
