What is the social or environmental issue being addressed?

One in three people in America have a criminal record, and encounter 48,000 legal barriers as a result of their record. These barriers affect all areas of life including access to employment, stable housing, small business loans, medical benefits, Social Security, family reunification, and higher education.

Innovation:

Root & Rebound is dedicated to restoring full citizenship to every justice-involved person in America by dismantling the two-tiered system of justice. Their mission is to democratize the law by transferring power from the policy and legal communities to the people most impacted by the criminal justice system through public education, direct legal services, and policy advocacy. They bring legal advocacy to scale to people who need legal access the most.
