The Role of Community Development in Supporting People in Reentry from Prison
Lena Robinson
Mark A. Hake
Abstract

This article discusses some of the lessons learned and progress made now six full years into implementation of California’s AB 109 (the Public Safety Realignment Act), which called for the reduction of overcrowding of state prisons by committing people convicted of lower level offenses to local county jails instead of state prisons, and shifting greater control and responsibilities of incarceration and community supervision to local county governments. Elevating the issue of reentry beyond the purview of parole and probation enables other sectors, agencies, and industries to engage in the systemic changes and broad investments that are necessary for a comprehensive reentry strategy.
