Free Webinar Series: Reentry and Older Adults

When: Multiple webinars. Dates and times below.

As the prison population rapidly ages, older adults reentering our communities after incarceration face significant barriers to reintegrating and living securely. In particular, older adults of color are disproportionately represented in the reentry population, and, due to structural discrimination, are at risk of being unable to access the health and economic security programs that could help them live securely in the community. 

In conjunction with our newly launched Reentry Project, Justice in Aging presents this first in a three-part webinar series on reentry issues. 

In this webinar series, we will cover:

  • Trauma-informed and culturally competent approaches to working with older adults in reentry
  • Insights from reentry advocates with lived experience
  • Policy recommendations on improving outcomes in housing and public benefits

Who Should Participate:
Any older adult advocate directly serving older adults or involved in systemic advocacy on behalf of older adults.
