As states, especially red states, continue to enact meaningful criminal justice reforms, the Charles Koch Institute invites right-of- center leaders to evaluate the situation in Tennessee. There are currently more than 20,000 inmates in Tennessee prisons, and another 70,000 are on probation and parole.

CKF_NYReentry_Wordpress Revised

  The effects of incarceration rarely end when individuals return home. Rather, the collateral consequences continue to take a toll, especially on families. New research from Harvard sociologist Bruce Western and his team sheds light on those challenges and the sources of support for returning citizens and their families. Please join the Charles Koch Foundation, Harvard University, and the J.C. Flowers Foundation as we discuss these findings and determine where to go from here.
