NORFOLK, VA –  The Community Collaboration Re-Entry Summit will be held Monday, September 24, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ted Constant Convocation Center, 4320 Hampton Boulevard.  The media is cordially invited to attend.

This summit welcomes those with an interest in prisoner re-entry -- previously incarcerated people and their families, service providers and potential employers. State Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran will give the keynote address. Congressman Bobby Scott and Department of Corrections Director Harold Clarke will be among those offering remarks.

People who recently returned to the community following incarceration will participate in a panel discussion and share their stories of struggle and success.  Other breakout sessions include doctors from EVMS who will discuss incarceration and health; “Empathy, Accountability, and Making Amends” – a discussion of the victim impact program; “Creating a Youth Friendly Training Environment to Employment” and “Jobs for Life and the Church – The Pathway to Re-entry.”

The summit is hosted by the Norfolk Re-Entry Council and the Old Dominion University Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice.
