The Reintergration Initiative Makeover Grant is being presented by Activate Your Life 501c3 in partnership with the 5th Annual Activate Diversity Conference being held September 15th-17th in Miami Fl.

Realizing the lack of support for those reentering into society after incarceration, Activate Your which is a registered 501c3 will partner with the 5th Annual Activate Conference on this Reintergration Initiative. This is a passion that I personally experienced and understand how important it is for these grantees to receive support in any form or fashion upon release and reentry.
