The Reentry Project: We are halfway through our journalistic experiment and there’s lots more to do

Staff and interns from the Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple University are supporting The Reentry Project, a collaborative news initiative about the challenges of—and solutions to—prisoner reentry in Philadelphia. Here’s an update from the halfway point:

Helping those who are reentering society from prison

The United States has more people with criminal backgrounds than the entire population of France. In Philadelphia, it’s estimated that between 200,000 and 300,000 residents – approximately one in every six of us – has been intimately familiar with a jail cell. One in six.

Journalism partnership seeking solutions to prisoner reentry challenges

The Center for Public Interest Journalism provides operational support to the Philadelphia Reentry Reporting Collaborative. Five Temple journalism students are participating as interns and one class is collaborating.

Local journalists get to know the Philadelphia Reentry Reporting Collaborative

Journalists from leading Philadelphia newsrooms gathered recently at the nation’s oldest press club to learn about an innovative new reporting project addressing one of the nation’s most intractable challenges: prisoner reentry. The Philadelphia Reentry Reporting Collaborative launched late last year, bringing together a broad spectrum of news organizations to examine evidence-based responses to challenges facing local citizens returning from incarceration.

Nieman Journalism Lab took a look at the project shortly after launch last fall: In Philly, news orgs are teaming up to cover problems (and solutions) around prisoner reentry
