For individuals returning home after incarceration, the hurdles to successful reentry are substantial. Returning citizens struggle to find housing, transportation, medical care, and employment at a liveable wage. On top of this, many face mental health and substance addiction challenges. The probation system and its myriad of reporting requirements, meetings, costs for treatment, curfews, and surveillance are insurmountable hurdles for too many.
Join the Campaign for Smart Justice on Tuesday, April 18 at 6 p.m. for a VIRTUAL panel to learn more about navigating Delaware's broken probation system directly from individuals with lived experiences. This conversation will provide insight into the challenges people on probation and their families face after incarceration, and the solutions needed to fix Delaware's broken probation system like SB 4— new legislation that aims to eliminate systemic barriers that prevent those recently released from prison from successfully rejoining society.
Delaware needs probation reform NOW.
This event will be VIRTUAL via Zoom. Registration is required.
