The American Correctional Association (ACA) has just released its new reader “Pathways for Offender Reentry.” This new publication includes essays by scholars and practitioners including an article by CCA staff, “Unlocking the Potential of Reentry through Reintegrative Justice.”
CCA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote reintegrative justice and reduce society's reliance on incarceration. We help indigent defendants from the time they are arrested by advocating on their behalf in court and by providing community treatment programs where judges can send them as alternatives to jail or prison. These programs are far less costly than prison and have achieved excellent results for helping participants live safe, healthy lives and avoid re-arrest. We also help women, men, and youth who are newly released from prison with re-entry and recovery programs. Our Justice Strategies division works for systemic reform that will end the over-use of prison as a response to crime.
