Illinois Alliance for Reentry and Justice

​We aim to become a powerful voice for systemic change and justice for people with records in Illinois.

Barriers and permanent consequences faced by returning residents are many, the services and resources meant to support them in overcoming those barriers are often in silos, and no single agency can address every need of every justice impacted person. The Illinois Alliance for Reentry and Justice brings directly impacted individuals, advocates, and service providers working on reentry in Illinois together to collectively create alternatives to incarceration, reduce recidivism, and end mass incarceration.
