Stop the Merging of Sensitive Needs Yards and General Population in California State Prisons!

1. Immediately end the integration of Sensitive Needs Yards into the general population - (e.g. families are concerned that people in general population are being integrated with people from Sensitive Needs Yards in smaller numbers, including Norco State Prison where people have reported having 5 general population individuals with 25 SNY individuals);

2. Meet with families and people inside through the established advisory councils and self-help groups in order to solicit ideas for the full programming, access to medical and other resources, and possible plan for any future integration of people incarcerated within CDCR facilities;

3. Meet with advocacy and organizing groups who signed this letter – many of which are led by formerly incarcerated people and/or the families of incarcerated people, and others that work regularly inside the institutions – to further advise CDCRon these matters;

4. Meet with union membership to gather staff advice on these matters;

5. Develop a work group including representatives from people inside, formerly incarcerated people, family members and community organizations (among those who signed this letter) and task the work group to release a report on the best way forward to ensure programming, medical and mental health care, treatment, rehabilitation, safety and an environment free from racial and geographic hostilities, politics, violence and coercion for everyone.

When Terrorists Come Home: The Need For Rehabilitating and Reintegrating America’s Convicted Jihadists
Dec 2018 Counter Extremism Project report
The United States Government (USG) has prosecuted more than 400 jihadist terrorists since 9/11. While several of those convicted will spend the rest of their lives in prison, the overwhelming majority will one day re-enter society. In fact, over the next five years, nearly a quarter of the United States' terror convicts will complete their terms of imprisonment. Moreover, since the average age of those charged with ISIS-related crimes is only 27, they will be released back into American society with a long life to live. This raises a critical and little examined question regarding U.S. counterterrorism strategy: what is being done in U.S. prisons to prepare this growing and unique segment of the prison population for re-entry into society?

It Takes a Village: An Action Agenda on the Role of Civil Society in the Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Those Associated With and Affected by Violent Extremism
Aug 2018 ICCT report
This report examines the role of civil society organisation (CSOs) in the rehabilitation and reintegration of those associated with and affected by violent extremism. It builds on the work conducted by ICCT and the Global Center on Cooperative Security, together with four subregional partners over the past two-and-a-half years in Africa and South-East Asia. The project aimed to first understand how CSOs work within their communities and with their governments to support the rehabilitation and reintegration of violent extremist offenders, victims of violence, and affected communities. It then supported the work of select CSOs by facilitating small grants to bolster existing efforts or pilot innovative approaches. The findings and lessons learned from the project have culminated in the development of this action agenda, which provides policy and programmatic recommendations for stakeholders working on rehabilitation and reintegration and the role of CSOs in supporting that process.

The project focused on three regions: the Sahel (Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, and Senegal); the Greater Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, and Uganda); and Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines).

Navigating the Road to Reintegration—Status and Continuing Support of the U.S. Air Force's Wounded Warriors
2015 RAND research report
The U.S. Air Force wanted to gain greater insight into the well-being of its members who have sustained mental or physical injuries in combat or combat-related situations, with an eye toward improving services provided and enabling wounded airmen to become fully functioning members of society, and taking advantage of ongoing
research into how best to do so. Areas of interest include their quality of life and the challenges that will impede their reintegration following separation or retirement. To begin the process of gaining this insight, the Air Force asked RAND’s Project AIR FORCE for assistance in gauging the current status of the Air Force’s wounded warriors, including their use of and satisfaction with Air Force programs designed to serve them. This report presents the baseline findings from the longitudinal analysis undertaken to
understand these ongoing issues.

Book Excerpt: Understanding the New Jim Crow |
The following is an excerpt from Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. - "Today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African-Americans. Once you’re labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination— employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits and exclusion from jury service — are suddenly legal. ...We have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." - Michelle Alexander

Afghan reintegration program works toward long-term peace and stability
“In the last year, we’ve seen a renewed focus in the east, and that will continue over the next year,” said Bidjou. “We leveraged the winter months to push reintegration negotiations in the villages with the efforts of the Afghans and Coalition support. That way, when the spring offensive begins, we will see large numbers of fighters laying down their weapons.”

The drive to turn the Taliban to peace - Telegraph
After months of planning, we were finally given exclusive access to the Afghan Peace and Reintegration Programme — the process in which members of the Taliban are encouraged to leave the insurgency. We met in the compound belonging to the district governor of Qala-e-Naw, the capital of Badghis.
