Prince George’s Hosts First Annual Returning Citizens Summit

Prince George’s Returning Citizens Affairs Division spearheads new initiatives to build on the mission of a re-entry ecosystem. 

Prince George’s held their first annual Returning Citizens Summit in honor of #SecondChanceMonth which was during the month of April. Speakers, panel discussions, and resources focused on re-entry services, what works, what doesn’t and what the future holds. The event was hosted by the Returning Citizens Affairs Division (RCAD) in the Office of the County Executive.

The RCAD was established in 2019 with the mission to lead Prince George’s in being a regional and national model reentry ecosystem that provides county residents released from incarceration in state, local, and federal facilities with opportunities to transform their lives in such a way that they will become fully engaged and productive members of the community. The Re-Entry Advisory Board for RCAD is a 21 member panel to oversees the work of the division. Videos from meetings, annual reports and initiatives for the Board can be found on the Advisory Board website.
