In 2019, thousands of community members are returning home from federal prison under the First Step Act. Passing this bill was only our first step – our next is making sure those returning home are #ReentryReady to make their return home a supported and successful one.

Resources for People Coming Home Under the First Step Act

Last year, #cut50 fought to pass the First Step Act. Now, thousands of people are returning home from federal prison and reuniting with their families!

We're working around the clock to make sure people have the resources and support they need to succeed.

you can download First Step to Second Chances, a guide that we have developed in partnership with Root & Rebound thanks to the generous support of The Margaret and Daniel Loeb Foundation. The guide covers how to navigate the early days of release, what individuals' rights are with a criminal record, and where to go for support and resources.

Let's work together to make sure that individuals coming home are #ReentryReady!


We are grateful for the generous support of The Margaret and Daniel Loeb Foundation, without which the creation of this guide would not be possible.
