Weekly News from LMM
Reentry Week 2021 is in full swing here in Cleveland! This week highlights the stories of returning citizens, social and legislative barriers affecting them and their families, and how community members can become involved to ensure better outcomes for individuals leaving incarceration.

Earlier this week, LMM hosted a panel discussion with two Chopping4Change graduates and film subjects of the movie Apart, Amanda and Tomika, along with community partners Towards Employment and Recovery Resources. In case you missed it, watch the discussion here.
