Date: January 11, 2023

Free Webinar: Reentry: Advocating for Formerly Incarcerated Older Adults

When: Thursday, January 26, 2023, at 2:00-3:00 E.T.

As the prison population rapidly ages, older adults reentering our communities after incarceration face significant barriers to their ability to reintegrate and live securely.
In particular, older adults of color are disproportionately represented in the reentry population, and, due to structural discrimination, are at risk of being unable to access the health and economic security programs that could help them live securely in the community.

Legal services attorneys and elder rights professionals are uniquely situated to assist older adult clients with reentry.
This training will equip advocates with knowledge of issues that older adults reentering our communities face in accessing public benefits, health care, and housing and will provide strategies for advocating on behalf of clients.

This training will address:

Strategies for accessing housing in reentry
Understanding Medicaid and Medicare limitations for older adults in reentry
Navigating common Social Security eligibility issues for older adults in reentry

Presenters:

Jennifer Kye, Senior Attorney, Justice in Aging
Georgia Burke, Director, Medicare Advocacy, Justice in Aging
Trinh Phan, Director, State Income Security, Justice in Aging
