Harvard University's Government Innovators Network, the National Institute of Justice of the U.S. Department of Justice, and the online housing resource KnowledgePlex are hosting this free online event to discuss the challenges former prisoners face in reintegrating into society and finding adequate housing upon release from prison. This online forum will tap the knowledge and experience of key leaders in reentry research and program development, highlight housing programs designed to assist returning prisoners, and discuss the resulting policy challenges for lawmakers. The forum will then be opened to allow attendees to ask questions of the panelists.
