The Southwestern PA Reentry Coalition (SPARC) is holding its first annual reentry conference entitled LIFE WITHOUT BARS: Removing Invisible Bars to Reentry on September 28th, 2012, from 8am – 5pm at the Teplitz Memorial Moot Courtroom located in the Barco Law Building, The University of Pittsburgh School of Law. This special event will focus on national, state and local strategies and solutions to effectively reintegrate individuals with criminal backgrounds back into communities in Southwestern PA.
We are pleased to announce that the United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, David Hickton, and Joseph Sestak, former U.S. Representative for the 7th Congressional district of Pennsylvania, will both serve as keynote speakers for this event. In addition, this powerhouse conference will host several state and federal judges, leading officials in state and federal probation and parole, and multiple community and faith-based leaders in reentry from several organizations located in Southwestern PA.
