"An estimated one in six Philadelphians has been incarcerated.

 

Those 200,000 to 300,000 people share other commonalities, such as difficulty in finding employment and housing. And in the city, 60 percent of those released from prison will return within three years — a number that jumps to 68 percent nationally.

 

To help the average person make sense of all these issues, The Reentry Project intern and Temple journalism student Julie Christie designed a detailed infographic with stats, historical context and other facts about “life after incarceration” in Philadelphia."
