CRIME, ex-offender re-entry activism and policy [M, H]

Chicago Tribune (Jamie Francisco):
On Sunday, more than 100 people attended a "Back to School" picnic sponsored by Helping Ourselves Prisoners and Ex-Offenders, a group [Sheryl] Abel, 47, of Maywood established in 2002 to assist women recently released from prison in their transition back into society. About 70 of the attendees at Memorial Park in Hillside were women who had been incarcerated, Abel said.

Did any Proviso Probe readers attend the event?

Congressman Danny K. Davis has made ex-offender re-entry his signature issue.

What do you think of the issue? What should be done about it?
