California has the largest prison population in the United States and spends approximately $50,000 per year to house each prisoner.  This year the state spent almost as much on prisons ($9.2 billion) as on universities and community colleges ($11.6 billion).

Thousands of prisoners may soon be released into society without adequate support.  Many fall back into the cycle of drugs, alcohol, abuse, violence and crime.  The recidivism rate is 70%.   This cycle makes no sense. 

The Richmond Improvement Association (RIA) is stepping in to support individuals as they transition into a world beyond the prison pipeline.  That group has opened its first home and program to assist individuals in making a successful, productive and permanent move into society.  Please join the call to learn more about the underlying problems that perpetuate the prison cycle and how RIA is working to make a difference.
