Thank you for your interest in the Education Justice Project's Reentry Guides!
EJP's reentry guides provide individuals and communities impacted by incarceration with resources and tools for self-empowerment. We hope these guides will be useful for people leaving prison, as well as for family members, friends, and service providers.
We offer two guides:
- Mapping Your Future: A Guide to Successful Reentry, 2021 (for people leaving prison and living in Illinois, available in English and Spanish)
- A New Path: A Guide to the Challenges and Opportunities After Deportation, 2021-2022 (for people who are being deported after release or detention, available in English and Spanish)
You can request an individual copy of one or more of our guides, or if you work at a prison or reentry organization, you can request multiple copies. If possible, we ask that you pay for guides if you or your organization can afford to. This allows us to send guides for free to people on the inside. Each guide costs $9 to produce and send. Typically, guide requests take 2-3 weeks to fill.
Please note that our guides are also available for free download online at https://educationjustice.net/reentry/
. You can also search for reentry resources in our directory at reentryillinois.net.
