Lee on the Many Barriers to Reentry in California
Eumi Lee has published an article titled, The Centerpiece to Real Reform? Political, Legal, and Social Barriers to Reentry in California, 7 Hastings Race & Poverty L. J. 243 (2010) (symposium on California correctional crisis)(available on HeinOnline). The article concludes that the reentry programs established by AB 900 have not become the "Centerpiece of Real Reform" they were promised to be. Without the implementation of community-based reentry programs and the reform of state and federal laws that impose many collateral consequences on parolees, "the self-reinforcing cycle of incarceration, parole, and recidivism will continue unabated."
