The R.E.A.P Program focuses on addressing the difficult issues that queer and transgender formerly incarcerated people face when they are reentering society. Lack of quality and safe residency, medical care, employment and self-development are continuing to lead people back into a system that did not prepare them to be released and be successful in the first place. Bridging that gap, is where Black and Pink’s R.E.A.P program comes in.
The R.E.A.P Program to strengthen community-based programming that LGBTQ+ people feel is supportive and affirming, decrease the numbers for LGBTQ+ people reentering the Nebraska justice system at the city, county and state level and create opportunities for formerly incarcerated people to create a quality of life that they dictate without barriers or ceilings.
OUR VISION FOR R.E.A.P.
Strengthen community-based services that uplift and affirm queer and transgender formerly incarcerated people.
Build a new vision for what reentry programming looks like in the Midwest, and across the country.
See the number of LGBTQ+ people entering the prison system decline
Intentionally support more formerly incarcerated people to do direct service work and placed in leadership roles through program hiring practices.
