Description

The Community is a nonprofit organization showcasing the successes, humanity, and agency of people with criminal records. The Community addresses the effects of the criminal punishment system with two arms: Pre-entry and Correcting the Narrative. Pre-entry supports their ever-growing connection with over half the Wisconsin prison population via their newsletter and educational tech platform to provide them with every type of resource, encouragement, and training to return to society as successfully as possible, rather than trying to get prepared after release. Their Correcting the Narrative campaign showcases the successes, humanity, and agency of people with criminal records to counteract the fear, pity, and spectacle narratives. In addition, All In All Out is a podcast partnership between The Community and the Milwaukee School of Engineering University Scholars Honors Program. It explores the nuance of topics and promotes greater collaboration in Wisconsin’s reentry/reform/decarceration ecosystem, as well as showcasing the successes, humanity, and agency of people with criminal records.
