The Criminal Legal System Initiative held our inaugural convening on March 30, 2021. Attendees with lived and professional experience with housing, homeless, and criminal legal systems joined virtually across more than 20 counties nationwide.
The convening sought to:
Highlight emerging cross-sector strategies to improve housing access and prevent homelessness for people impacted by the criminal legal system;
Explore approaches to leveraging resources and funding to support these strategies; and.
Provide opportunities for peer learning, networking, and action planning to identify actionable next steps for attendees’ communities.
