Thanks to a resolution adopted last spring, June is now officially Reentry Awareness Month in Philadelphia.

That means a whole month of events focused on an issue that affects 25,000 Philadelphians who return to the city from prison and jail every year.

Reentry Awareness Month was first brought to Philadelphia by Gateway to Reentry a few years ago, said Philadelphia Reentry Coalition (PRC) Director Aviva Tevah via email. 2018’s events range from trauma-informed care trainings to expungement clinics and panels to parties.

Generocity reported in March that the coalition, with its dozens of organizational members focused on reentry, had finally released cohesive recidivism data two years after the 2016 kickoff of the PRC’s Home for Good initiative — a five-year plan to improve Philadelphia’s reentry process and reduce recidivism by 25 percent.

“If we were to be successful in that reduction, that would mean 2,000 fewer people rearrested” per year, Tevah told us at the time.
