My interest in criminal justice stems from my previous work with individuals who had recently released from prison and were working to become self-sufficient. Based on their criminal justice history, many individuals were unable to access the necessary resources and guidance they needed in order to thrive in society and get back on their feet. Anecdotally, this appeared to me to be strongly linked to recidivism and it ignited my passion to participate in an innovative reentry program in my community like the Safe Streets and Second Chances Initiative.
