This episode of Reentry Radio is part one of a special three-part series about housing access and support for people with criminal justice system involvement.
On October 27, 2016, the Prisoner Reentry Institute (PRI) held a special event in partnership with The Fortune Society, The Supportive Housing Network of New York, and the Corporation for Supportive Housing. This day-long event, Excluded: A Dialogue on Safe, Supportive, and Affordable Housing for People with Justice System Involvement, gathered together a group of speakers and panelists from a variety of fields. Our recommendations were released in our report, A Place to Call Home, and this special podcast series.
Ann Jacobs, Director of PRI, moderated the first panel featured in this episode, “A Place Called Home: Why it Matters,” featuring:
Jerilyn Perine, Executive Director of the Citizens Housing Planning Council
Ana Oliveira, President of the New York Women’s Foundation
Anthony Thompson, Professor of Criminal Law at NYU law School
The panelists discussed the fundamental values and vision that drive policy related to providing housing and services to justice-involved people.
