New semester, New Pro Bono Opportunity

The Pro Bono Program has agreed to work with the national organization, Root and Rebound.  They work to address the barriers faced by those who have been incarcerated. Communities can help as can policies that promote self-sufficiency.  Students will initially be working on research and drafting of a resource library. Other activities include research on policy changes and participation in public information sessions. This is not a program for everyone. Plan on talking with the Pro Bono Program if you are at all interested not only helping this population but also reentry issues.
