Major conference on prisoner reentry

Thanks to an e-mail, I received news about a national conference on prisoner reentry taking place next week co-hosted by the Criminal Justice Institute and the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School. The conference is entitled "ReThinking Re-Entry: Confronting Perpetual Punishment" and takes place on March 31 — April 1, 2006.  Basic information and a link to the full brochure can be accessed here.  Here are more details from the e-mail I received:

Among the topics which panelists will discuss and explore in depth are addiction, community impact, disenfranchisement, economics and education, employment, housing, mental health, public policy, and women/families.  This conference will bring together a broad cross-section of stakeholders — academics, corrections officials, community based organizations, formerly incarcerated people and their families, youth, service providers, government officials and representatives of the media.
