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. To achieve this goal, the Roundtable addresses the challenges to reentry and reintegration faced by formerly incarcerated individuals.
Who do we bring to the Table?
Membership in the Roundtable is open to organizations and individuals who confirm their interest in supporting our mission and work. If you are interested in membership, please contact the Chair of the Nominating Committee, Mary Moran.
The Roundtable's Structure:
- 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.
Successful reentry and reintegration requires the efforts of the entire community. Check out our calendar for ways to get involved with the Roundtable. We invite you to attend any of the following:
