Let’s talk reentry.

Last week we shared The Reentry Project’s PowerUp Reentry event, an October hackathon (aka “digital solutions day”) for folks working in the reentry community, as well as journalists and technologists (RSVP here).

The collaborative just announced another cool event for the following month. The Reentry Blueprint: Stories and Solutions from the Formerly Incarcerated will feature a six short presentations on how everyday Philadelphians can ease the reentry process for returning citizens — straight from the mouths of those citizens themselves.

  • What — TED Talk-style lighting talks on topics like “harnessing the political power of the formerly incarcerated, crime and violence reduction, home-ownership, entrepreneurship, and trauma informed care”
  • When — Wednesday, Nov. 15, 6 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Where — The Franklin Institute, 222 N. 20th St.
  • How much — Free
Get tix

This announcement comes on the heels of more exciting news from The Reentry Project: Lenfest Institute for Journalism just awarded it a chunk of a $2 million grant round for “innovative” journalism projects.
