Urban Rural Action and the Pennsylvania Prison Society recently implemented a “Consensus-Building for Incarceration Reduction: A Community Justice Program” (CBIR) to advance collaborative efforts to reduce incarceration and improve prospects for offenders and ex-offenders in Adams County and Philadelphia. The program is funded by the Vera Institute of Justice.

CBIR is a diverse group of community members, criminal justice reform advocates, professionals, students, and retirees from Philadelphia and Adams County with political views across the ideological spectrum.

Vickie Corbett is the executive director of United Way of Adams County.
