Welcome to the first edition of Release, a publication devoted to collecting stories about citizens with criminal histories and the organizations that serve them.
Produced by the Institute of Municipal and Regional Policy (IMRP) and created by students from Central Connecticut State University, the newsletter provides profiles, general features, interviews, videos, informative graphs and more.
Our goal: to empower ex-offenders and to educate the larger Connecticut community on what it can do to stem recidivism. Release covers employment, housing, education, children of incarcerated parents and other subject areas that relate to building a productive life with a criminal history.
For your free subscription to Release, which will be distributed online on a monthly basis and also published in print on a quarterly basis, please register here.
It’s sort of the mass causality nature…that calls us to action in a way that other things may not.
