    Second Chance Tucson will host a community forum focused on strategies to overcome the challenges faced by people with prior convictions. Discussion will focus on why successful reentry matters to our entire community. Working for the re-integration of people who have done their time and want to move forward in a positive direction is vital to Tucson and will help to create a strong and safe community.

    Topics will include:

    ·       Community impact of high rates of incarceration

    ·       The role of trauma, mental health and substance abuse

    ·       Criminal justice responses to reentry challenges

    ·       Success Stories and employer impact

    ·       Highlights of local reentry programs
