Community Re-entry for the Formerly Incarcerated

Formerly incarcerated individuals face many barriers when re-entering their communities. Learn more about those barriers and the programs successfully addressing them, and hear from formerly incarcerated individuals who have experienced trying to re-enter society. The roundtable for this event includes Alice Marie Johnson, a criminal justice reform advocate and former federal prisoner pardoned by former President Donald Trump; Dontae Sharpe, a North Carolina exoneree who now works at Forward Justice; and Elenore Wade, who teaches as a Visiting Associate Professor of Clinical Law & Friedman Fellow at The George Washington University Law School’s Prisoner & Reentry Clinic. The panel is followed by a Q&A. Wilson Center Director Brandon Garrett moderates.
