Re-Entry Initiative

First Class

The Community Education Resource Center is an initiative of the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project that provides support for people who are system-impacted. Located in Birmingham, CERC recognizes the diverse and intersectional challenges involved in re-entry and partners with community organizations to bring classes that are tailored to student needs. Crucial to the development of our community is elevating the voices of those with experience of incarceration and involving them in identifying strategies for and solutions to systemic inequities. We are a community of humans working together. Follow us on facebook for more: facebook.com/CERCinBHM.
