This mass incarceration is by far the largest in the world. African Americans are disproportionately imprisoned and challenged by the consequences of incarceration in education, jobs, voting, and other aspects of life.

Since 96 percent of those imprisoned are released, there is an urgent need for resources and research that can improve reentry outcomes. Reconstructing Rage analyzes how — and how well — one organization, Reconstruction, Inc.

of Philadelphia, has organized returning prisoners, their families, and communities for 24 years. It looks at Reconstructionss programs, strategies, and patterns of change over time- holistic (i.e., mind-body-spirit) and principled transformations in the people and families it has touched- and at its collaborations and contributions to criminal justice and public policy best practices.

Reconstructing Rage explores challenges of improving community capacity and quality of life outcomes within and beyond reentry and reintegration, for former felons, their families, and a growing number of others interested in a broader social justice.
