Print Barriers to Reentry

This issue of Making Policy Public tells the stories of formerly incarcerated people and the difficulties they face when trying to reenter the workforce. With vivid portraits, it puts the faces of real people on the fact that 1 in 5 adults in the United States has a criminal record, and it explains their rights when being considered for a job.

Barriers to Reentry was a critical tool in The Fortune Society’s successful campaign this year for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to release an updated and improved set of guidelines for employers on the use of criminal background checks in hiring!

This pamphlet was produced through a collaboration of CUP, the Fortune Society, and designer Sara McKay. Photographs by Fiona Aboud.
