    BHSI Fellow; Founder & Executive Director, Root & Rebound

    Katherine Katcher is the founder & executive director of Root & Rebound, a reentry legal resource center that aims to help the United States become a society that supports opportunities for all by providing expertise in all areas of reentry law to individuals with past justice involvement, families with incarcerated loved ones and community based organizations and agencies. In just four years, the organization has reached almost 40,000 people through its California programs and services and is working to expand its model nationally.
