The policy priorities of our Family Strengthening Department include advocacy on issues such as workforce development for formerly incarcerated individuals, family reunification, and reducing recidivism. Our Family Strengthening team has collaborated with partners to assist in organizing Quest For Democracy, an annual statewide convening at the Capitol of formerly incarcerated individuals, family members, allies and supporters that aims to educate policymakers about issues related to incarceration, reducing recidivism, and providing the necessary resources to assist people in successfully transitioning home from jail or prison.
