About the Philadelphia Reentry Reporting Collaborative:
Philadelphia faces one of largest-scale reentry problems in the nation. Each year, tens of thousands of citizens return to the city from prison or jail. The challenges these returning citizens face after incarceration are myriad — from employment to housing, from resisting recidivism to expunging criminal records — and the Collaborative’s goal is to bring them to the fore of our diverse readership.
The Philadelphia Reentry Reporting Collaborative project is a citywide journalism effort, supported by the Solutions Journalism Network, which addresses the issues of reentry in the Philadelphia region by looking at them through the framework of how problems are being addressed, and which ideas and models show promise based on evidence and data.<more info>
