Description: “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 its newly launched Reentry Project, Justice in Aging presents this first in a three-part webinar series on reentry issues. This webinar will provide a solid base of information on policy issues facing the older adult reentry population and will discuss ways that advocates for older adults can improve their ability to serve this group.”
