Volume 85 Number 2
September 2021

On Nov. 4, 2020, over 2,000 people were released early from incarceration through public health emergency credits in New Jersey as part of state legislation to address the disproportionate COVID-19 death rate among incarcerated populations. The authors examine reentry challenges from the perspectives of New Jersey-based community organizers that met with and provided services to people who were part of this mass release.
