Members of this committee will work closely with a production company to create a budget and a timeline for this year’s video, while looking for people who speak Spanish to appear in the video. Members of the committee will also work to distribute the Spanish video, while seeking donations as needed, in order to copy the video.
If you are interested in helping out with this year’s project, please contact Leslie Boykin.
In the latest phase of its ongoing Reentry Project, the Austin Young Lawyers Association is developing a Spanish version of the English-language video produced last year. Both videos are based on AYLA’s award-winning resource guide for people re-entering society after being incarcerated.
Originally published in 2010 and available in both English and Spanish, AYLA’s “Reentry Resource Guide” is an invaluable tool for people who have been imprisoned or jailed. From immigration to licensing issues and a wide range of subjects in between, the guide strives to educate individuals released from incarceration on their rights, obligations, and options as they re-integrate into society. The guide is also a valuable resource for attorneys seeking an overview of the legal issues confronting this particular population.
The videos are available for viewing at www.austinreentry.com. In addition, website visitors can sign up for a free DVD copy of the video and download copies of the Resource Guide.
The Reentry Project videos were made possible by grants from the Texas Young Lawyers Association, the State Bar of Texas, and the Texas Bar Foundation.
