The Project

The purpose of this project is to advocate for prisoners with disabilities to increase their access to the educational, vocational, and pre-release prison programs and services that they need to successfully reenter society. I hope to impress upon prison officials and disability advocates that meaningful reentry must begin during incarceration.
