Beyond the Walls: Prison Healthcare and Reentry Summit

Wednesday, June 15th 2016

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Thank you for supporting the 2016 Prison Summit! Check back in Winter 2017 for more information about the 2017 Prison Summit.

The Beyond the Walls: Prison Healthcare and Reentry Summit brings together the communities that are affected by the parallel crises of HIV and mass imprisonment. With a focus on community-led responses to the crisis in the criminal justice system, workshops reflect the needs of prisoners and former prisoners and will highlight the work being done to improve conditions inside the prison walls and in the communities to which prisoners are returning.

We’re still adding Prison Summit content. Keep checking back for more information on this year’s Beyond the Walls: Prison Healthcare and Reentry Summit!
