Reentry Net/NY Training and Events Calendar
February 2006

The monthly Reentry Net/NY calendar provides New York State advocates with information about upcoming converences, trainings, meetings, and other events related to prison and jail reentry and the consequences of criminal proceedings.  The monthly calendar includes events that are geared to different sectors of the advocate community: social services, criminal defense, civil legal services, and policy reform advocates.

Many of the events listed are free of charge; some are fee-based.  For more information, or to register in advance, please contact the event sponsors directly.  Contact information for each event is provided on the calendar.

If you would like to add an event to the calendar, contact Reentry Net  Coordinator Kate Rubin (kater@bronxdefenders.org).  Don't forget to check the Reentry Net/NY homepage at www.reentry.net/ny for updates and library resources.
