Riley Reentry Summit

Hundreds of civic and spiritual leaders gathered in Montgomery on Tuesday to talk about keeping former prisoners out of prison.

Governor Bob Riley sponsored the summit to bring together some 700 leaders to discuss the Community Partnership for Recovery and Reentry.

The initiative is designed to involve faith based and community groups in providing pre-release and post-release support for former prisoners.

Another summit for local faith based and community initiative groups will take place at Montgomery's Renaissance Hotel next month.
