Approximately 700,000 people are released from state and federal prisons and jails every year. Barriers to their reentry into society, known as the collateral consequences of a conviction, extend punishment far beyond the penal system. Despite having paid their debt to society, people with criminal convictions face punitive policies and regulations that restrict critical access to housing, employment, public benefits, education, and political participation.
