Why do you come to work at Root & Rebound every day?   Mass Incarceration is a major issue that the United States is facing. The United States accounts for about 5 percent of the worlds population, but is 20% of the worlds incarcerated population. These statistics bother me because they represent a broken system that needs to be fixed. Root & Rebound is giving me the opportunity to positively impact the lives of others through clinics and the other reentry services they offer. Not only is Root & Rebound positively influencing the lives of others, this organization is contributing to the fight against mass incarceration.
