FITE Film & Panel at Cal Day

Root & Rebound will be joining the creators and students of the film, From Incarceration to Education, to discuss the barriers and struggles of facing formerly incarcerated individuals who are looking to go back to school.

Our Deputy Director, Sonja Tonnesen, will be joining a panel to elaborate on the legal barriers an aspiring student may have to tackle due to their arrest or conviction histories, as well as the ways to mitigate the adverse effects. We will also be giving more information on our new "My Education, My Freedom" Toolkit for Formerly Incarcerated & System-Impacted Students Pursuing Education in California!
