Join UnCommon Law and Root & Rebound for an important conversation and look into criminal justice reform and the aftermath of incarceration.

In 2012, California amended its “Three Strikes” law—one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. The passage of Prop. 36 marked the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days, the reintegration of thousands of “lifers” was underway. THE RETURN examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines—prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions, and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law. At a moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California’s experiment teach the nation?

After the film, join filmmaker Katie Galloway and Bilal Chatman, whose story is told in the film, along with folks from Root & Rebound and UnCommon Law. We will discuss what it's really like to return home after incarceration.

We will also hear from Initiate Justice about the Voting Restoration and Democracy Act, and will find out how to get this important initiative on the ballot!
