Your Support Today will Help Fund Leadership & Professional Development Opportunities for System-Impacted Persons!
The Roundtable needs your support to increase opportunities for professional skill-building and mentorship for persons with justice system involvement. Our short-term goal is to raise $3,500 for the Reentry Advocacy Fellow professional development fund by September 15, 2023. Financial support from our network is needed to allow our current Fellow to participate in two premier leadership cohort opportunities.
Beyond our short-term goal, the Roundtable will dedicate donations received through the end of 2023 to funding additional leadership and professional development opportunities for folks directly impacted by the criminal legal system, including the compensation of system-impacted persons participating in the Roundtable’s new 15-member Coordinating Committee anticipated to begin in January 2024. Through ongoing investment in the reentry community, we will be taking a meaningful step toward the Roundtable’s long-term outcome: All persons with justice system involvement have what they need to survive and thrive including access to housing, a stable income, a support network to connect them to needed resources, and access to pathways to upward mobility.
We know that it is essential for persons directly impacted by the criminal legal system to have access to opportunities in peer support, advocacy, and leadership. Your tax deductible gift will help us reach these goals!
