19th Annual CARRE Conference


October 28, 2020


9:30 AM to 3 PM




For 18 straight years, Safer Foundation has brought together thought leaders from the public, for-profit, and not-for-profit sectors to explore the policies and approaches that address the countless issues facing people with arrest and conviction records.

The theme of this year’s conference is Creating Connections, Breaking Barriers, and Scaling Impact. We know that in order for radical changes in the reentry field to take place, it is critical that we connect across the existing silos and break barriers that separate us by our type of work or even geography. It is only when we unite and join our approaches to this work that we can truly scale impact for the good of our community, especially those impacted by the justice system.

At this year’s conference, we will celebrate the accomplishments of champions for people with records. We will feature three-panel discussions covering topics such as a new integrative reentry service delivery model that was borne out of the COVID crisis, a new statewide Alliance for Reentry, and creative policy recommendations for justice system transformation
