This is okay, we understand the transition back home can be overwhelming or even scary at times. We do not ask that you advocate immediately with us, but want you to know we are here if questions arise. Navigating back into society can be tough and we have staff, outside organizers and members who have done so in a productive way. These individuals and IJ are here whenever you feel you need support, help navigating reentry or are ready to get involved to help us free more people still incarcerated. 

 Simply showing up to our membership meeting once a month will suffice. This will allow you also to be in community with other members who have experienced incarceration or have family who’s experienced incarceration. Zoom, we know it can be a daunting task and please let us know if you need help setting up or click on this quick video to see how. We also want to note: Our meetings are all on zoom/virtual and if you feel more comfortable having the camera off and listening this is fine. Engagement or speaking in a meeting is not required but we do invite your input. 

Absolutely, IJ’s members are all system impacted either were incarcerated before or have a loved one currently or formerly incarcerated. We invite you to join our monthly member meetings and bring your family/loved one with you.
