for support of "Renewing Communities" to improve college opportunities for incarcerated Californians  
The Opportunity Institute works across issue silos to address the complex barriers to social mobility and focuses broadly on educational opportunities ranging from infant and toddler development to pathways out of incarceration. One signature project is Renewing Communities, a four-year initiative that is building pathways from criminal justice to higher education in California. The systems-change initiative aims for long-term sustainability so that the state’s public higher education system adopts the goal of higher education achievement for currently and formerly incarcerated students.
