Join CPMC in conversation with Sammy Perez, Director of Grassroots at Prison Fellowship, about the proposed Reentry Act. This bills proposes a program that would aid the reentry process and prevent gaps in care.

Sammy Perez leads Prison Fellowship’s grassroots program to build and mobilize a network of Christians who are passionate about justice that restores. Perez manages a team to equip Justice Advocates and Justice Ambassadors in the U.S. to raise awareness and improve the criminal justice system through digital advocacy, constituent lobbying, media engagement, and storytelling. After rediscovering faith in Christ, Perez, who has spent time in prison, overcame his past and began to serve others impacted by crime and incarceration, including volunteering as a Prison Fellowship Justice Ambassador before joining as a full-time employee. Perez was reappointed by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Prevention in the Commonwealth. Perez graduated from Liberty University with a degree in psychology, specializing in addiction and recovery, and is currently completing graduate studies in clinical mental health counseling. He enjoys life with his lovely wife and four children.
