Central Iowa Works Reentry Simulation – Meeting Room 306-307
The re-entry simulation was developed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office to better understand the barriers formerly incarcerated individuals face following their release from prison. The simulation gives participants a realistic perspective of what it’s like to return to the community after being incarcerated for months, years, and sometimes even decades. Participants will assume the identify of someone who has been released from prison for purposes of the re-entry simulation and given a scenario where they will need to secure housing, employment, transportation, healthcare and more! The purpose of this simulation is to raise public awareness of the barriers formerly incarcerated face when returning to our community where we live, work, and play. Speaker: This event is facilitated by Central Iowa Works at United Way of Central Iowa.
