A Las Vegas reentry program, Hope for Prisoners, has partnered with unusual allies: cops. “Nowhere on this planet has law enforcement gotten this involved in mentoring and training people that are coming home from the prison system,” said Jon Ponder, Hope for Prisoners’ founder.

Federal reentry program lowering recidivism rates in Minnesota: For some, prisons become a revolving door with many re-offending and ending up back behind bars just months or less after release. The person we are talking about has been in prison 10, 15, maybe 20 years. The reality they are released into makes no sense to them. They likely have little education, work history or exposure to now modern staples like iPhones. And those friends they had before prison are nowhere to be found. So now what? For some felons released in Minnesota, that transition is becoming clearer thanks to a now almost 4-year-old federal reentry program. The offenders now sit face-to-face at a table with judges, probation officers, attorneys, even one-time inmates. These people take a role in making sure the offenders have resources to become contributing members of the community. It's an 18-month long program with meetings scheduled every other week. And, as it turns out, it's working. 'Unfortunately, when we started the program, there was a 74 percent recidivism rate and now with this rather simple intervention we've brought the rate way down because we are giving these guys the chance to be successful in the community,' said Susan Nelson, a federal judge. Part of it is also helping them with housing and employment, so we have over 95 percent of them are employed on a full time basis,' said Donovan Frank, a federal judge. The recidivism rate has gone from 73 percent to 27 percent. This is a room full of attorneys with the The judges both say there were skeptics at the beginning. Now, they say many have changed their minds when they see the success rate and the money saved on re-incarcerating and supervision #recidivism #minnesota #reentry #hope #support #lifeafterprison #prisonreform #changingminds #betterfuture #believeinyourself #yourpastmistakesdontdefineyou
In continuing our conversations around criminal justice reform, we recently hosted a conference titled, "Responding to the Threat of Violent Recidivism: Alternatives to Long-Term Confinement." Here are just some photo highlights, where we were able to bring together legal experts and leading social scientists to discuss the research surrounding this issue. #MarquetteLaw #CriminalLaw #Recidivism

"I decided to run the streets but the streets ran me. It totally became a lifestyle that has no end. My focus was on money and respect but it was all for the wrong reasons. I chose to make very dangerous and poor decisions with no fear of any consequences. Around the time I graduated high school, something told me there is much more to life than pain and sorrow. My maturity level suddenly increased and I finally grew out of my mistakes and started taking responsibility for my actions and future." The Odyssey Project is a collaborative theater process between youth from a juvenile detention facility in Santa Barbara County and undergraduate students from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Using the template of Homer's Odyssey, the participants explore the mythic elements in their lives in order to reconstruct the epic poem in their own voices. Everyone on the creative journey is a hero or heroine. The project is designed to honor youth in identifying their heroic life mission and in mapping a course of action. It employs theater arts as a strategy for inspiring life affirming choices. In doing so, it seeks to demonstrate how artistic cooperation transcends class, racial and social barriers, and how art, with rehabilitation, serves as an alternative to incarceration and penalty.
