With the generous support of the San Francisco Foundation, the CA Criminal Justice Funders Group (CCJFG) is excited to present our research on fellowship programs for formerly-incarcerated people within the criminal justice field. This report, to our best knowledge, is the first of its kind in providing a comprehensive list of 35+ existing and proposed fellowship programs for formerly-incarcerated people in California. Faced with numerous barriers when reentering from incarceration, these fellowship programs in turn offer countless benefits which we are excited to detail in this report.
Through this initial research, we seek to inform funders about the diversity of fellowship opportunities throughout the state, and their benefits to California’s criminal justice reform movement. We will also explore the possibilities for more collaboration among philanthropists and CCJFG members, to utilize their collective resources in developing and uplifting the leadership of formerly-incarcerated people, both within the movement for criminal justice reform and beyond.
At this hybrid in-person/virtual briefing from 12:30-2:30pm on Thursday, February 7, we will present the research as well as key recommendations and call to action to best support fellowships for formerly incarcerated people. We will also hear directly from three highlighted fellows and their host organizations. Details to follow.
The in-person briefing will include lunch.
Virtual attendees will receive information later on how to connect to the briefing.
This webinar is from 12:30-2:30pm PST.
