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?
