Prisoner re-entry in Alaska

This is the first of a five-part series looking at prison re-entry. Want more? Alaska Public Media is hosting a live community forum on Thursday, Dec. 3, at 7:00 p.m. to dig deeper into life after prison.

In Alaska, 1,000 people leave prison and re-enter the community each month.  Nearly two-thirds of them will end up back in prison — unless they’re supported along the way through the re-entry process.
