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, Spanish edition coming soon)
- Returning Home: A Guide to the Challenges and Opportunities after Deportation 2020 (for people who are being deported after release, available in English and Spanish)
Both of these guides contain information about how to navigate reentry during the pandemic.
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. Typically, guide requests take 2-3 weeks to fulfill.
Please note that our guides are also available online at https://educationjustice.net/reentry/
. Guides can be downloaded at the top blue bar, and you can also search for reentry resources.
If you are able to do so, please make a donation to the Education Justice Project so that we can continue to offer these guides free to people who need them. Each guide costs $6 to produce and send. The donation link is at the bottom of the form.
