The Austin/Travis County Reentry Roundtable is a coalition working to promote a community that values and supports equity for formerly incarcerated persons and individuals with criminal histories.
We do that in several ways:
- Planning Council - the advisory board of the Roundtable;
- Reentry Advocacy Project (RAP) - a council of formerly incarcerated individuals and reentry stakeholders that informs the ongoing work of the Roundtable;
- Work groups - focus on key strategic areas related to reentry: community engagement; navigation and diversion; and collateral consequences; and the
- Advocacy Fellowship Program - develops the leadership and professional skills of Fellows who have significant lived experience navigating the criminal justice system and reentering the community. The Fellows provide administrative, communications, planning, coordination, and advocacy/policy support.
