INITIATIVE

JUSTICE FOR ALL, NOT JUST FOR SOME

Tocsin Magazine Announces "Reach Initiative" To Help Inmates Connect With Family and Society.

 

Tocsin Magazine announces  "Reach Initiative", a program designed to help inmates connect with resources in their communities. 

 

Through Reach Initiative, inmates will be able to access information regarding resources, such as legal assistance, mentorship programs, counseling services, reentry programs and much more.

 

As of March 30, 2019, Federal Bureau of Prisons release stats of the current inmate population. Roughly 49% are there for nonviolent crimes.

​ 

Unfortunately, once released, many people also face a greater chance of returning to prison. According to National Institute of Justice within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
