Why do you come to work at Root & Rebound every day?   I show up to work at Root & Rebound because I love the idea of giving people with a not so great past a second chance. I have also considered going into law and R&R is the perfect place to learn about law and our criminal justice system. I considered myself knowledgable on many topics but mass incarceration and prison reform was not one and Root and Rebound has given me the chance to learn more about these things.
