R&R Central Valley Communications & Outreach Coordinator
Root & Rebound is a national reentry and advocacy organization that addresses racial, economic, and social inequities within the criminal justice system and the reentry process by restoring and protecting rights, dignity, and opportunities for people directly impacted by the criminal justice system. Our mission is to restore power and resources to the families and communities most harmed by mass incarceration through legal advocacy, public education, policy reform and litigation—a model rooted in the needs and expertise of people who are directly impacted. We are headquartered in Oakland, California with satellite offices in Fresno, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Greenville, South Carolina. Our program in the Central Valley, the Fresno Reentry Women’s Employment Initiative (FRWEI), provides holistic wraparound direct services to formerly incarcerated women and TGNC folks, with a focus on people of color, as they overcome barriers to financial wellness and employment. Led by a three-woman team of a reentry attorney, policy advocacy & economic security coach, and social service manager, FRWEI offers coordinated legal, social, and employment reentry support for women of color with records to build self-sufficiency, leadership, and economic health. The Central Valley Communications & Outreach Coordinator VISTA will play a critical role in building capacity for our Fresno Reentry Women’s Employment Initiative (FRWEI) by supporting efforts to better serve rural communities and build sustainable programs and strategies for regional, localized growth in the Valley.
