The LARRP Policy and Advocacy Committee seeks to be a resource to inform and mobilize the reentry community around critical reentry policy issues and leverage the expertise of practitioners and impacted people into the policy making process.
The Committee will develop and advocate for the passage and implementation of legislative and administrative policies that improve opportunities for formerly incarcerated or convicted people, their families and communities, and the community-based agencies that serve them.
Committee work will be guided and prioritized by 3 questions:
- Will it have a direct impact on the lives of impacted people?
- Does it address reentry systems or services?
- Does it reduce racial discrimination in the criminal legal system?
LARRP is excited to bring you our legislative priorities for 2023! While there are many bills that we have been working on since January, this represents the full slate of LARRP's priority bills at the state and federal level. Each bill mentioned carries with it major ramifications for the currently and formerly incarcerated, and we encourage you to familiarize yourself with this legislation so that as we ask for advocacy and provide opportunities for you to get involved, you can hit the ground running! Your ongoing advocacy efforts help us work on behalf of our community, and we are so proud to bring you our priorities. If you want to participate in the LARRP Policy Team, or want Charles to speak to your team or organizations to present these bills, please let us know by emailing Charles@lareentry.org
