Reentry 2030 is uniting leaders across the country—at the state and local levels and across justice, workforce, health, and housing sectors—around a bold goal: successful reintegration for every person with a criminal record.
Our goal is that all 50 states will sign on to Reentry 2030, committing to designing and implementing an ambitious plan to:
1. Scale up access to stable housing, education, employment skills training, behavioral health treatment, health care, and other supports for people with criminal records;
2. Clear away unnecessary barriers to opportunities and economic mobility; and
3. Advance racial equity by using data to understand and address disparities in access to services, quality of services, and outcomes.
To achieve their Reentry 2030 plan, each will commit to: (1) bringing together a diverse team of stakeholders, (2) establish public goals and milestones—such as increasing employment rates at three months post-release by 40 percent or removing all mandatory barriers to occupational licensing, and (3) track and share progress.
To support the state teams and sustain momentum, Reentry 2030 will provide guidance on policy actions, technical assistance on best practices, a national convening, and other resources and events that highlight the strategies states are undertaking to achieve their goals.
By aligning goals and tracking progress across states, we aim to amplify statewide efforts, give states the opportunity to learn from each other in real time as they work on similar goals, and ultimately see significant advances in reentry and reintegration on a national level by 2030.
