What is life like after exiting prison? Starting over isn’t easy. Those who are released from prison face all sorts of challenges as they work to reintegrate back into community. This can be difficult for individuals, as they navigate a system that doesn’t always set them up for success. Most inmates will return to their communities. So we have to decide.
