GJP’s Upcoming Presentations in Partnership with GA Prisoner Reentry Initiative

Georgia Justice Project is partnering with the Georgia Prisoner Reentry Initiative to provide presentations to those with a criminal record and service providers in 7 counties across the state. The presentations are free and will focus on understanding criminal records in Georgia and what can be done about a criminal record.  There will be two separate presentations at each location: 

  • “Overcoming Legal Barriers to Reentry – A Presentation for Service Providers.” 
  • “Dealing with Your Criminal Record – A Presentation for People with a Criminal Record.” 
    • If you bring a recent copy of your GCIC criminal history an attorney or paralegal will review it and answer your questions about your record after the presentation.
