#ReimagineReentry with Root & Rebound

The #ReimagineReentry campaign shines a light on the devastating effects of mass incarceration and criminalization on human life. In the midst of harrowing statistics and systemic injustice, these first-person narratives amplify the strong voices of formerly incarcerated people and humanize the experiences behind the statistics. Learn about the impact our broken systems and policies have on individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities. The personal stories of 15 remarkable men and women tell the collective story that we need to listen to, so that, together, we can create change.

We are happy to share these films. Please contact us here if you would like to receive a copy of the Reimagine Reentry DVD, featuring the entire collection of interviews, or to set up a screening of the films in your area.

Please share the video campaign on social media! @ROOTandREBOUND #reimaginereentry

Many thanks to filmmaker, creator, and writer, Margaret Katcher, who made this film series possible, and the production team who assisted her: Sara Worth, Wesley Deimling, Hunter Bermudez, Claire Seaver.


Each week, Root & Rebound receives 150 letters from incarcerated men and women preparing for release.

Formerly incarcerated men and women read aloud the powerful letters we receive each day a Root & Rebound, bringing the voices of our incarcerated brothers and sisters to life. We hope this video inspires you.
