"Tackle The Shackles"

 Become a Game Changer!

 And "Team Up" with 

 Players, Providers, Police Officers, and Stakeholders

A Prison Reentry Network Event 


Tackle the Shackles (TTS) is a community based movement to reduce prison recidivism by empowering Returning Citizens to obtain jobs, affordable housing, transportation, and have the assistance of a Life Coach. Our goal is to partner with current and former NFL Football players, Reentry Resource Providers, Law Enforcement and Stakeholders to give them an opportunity to network and "team-up" for this worthy cause.

The main focus for this event is to Meet, Greet, and Eat with other like minded individuals and organizations and to build resource and relationship capacities for the purpose of reducing prison recidivism. Therefore, we believe that reentry works best networking with the right partnerships. "Many hands make lighter work!" 

We invite you to be our guest at the first ever TACKLE THE SHACKLES, prison reentry network event at The Source Church Unlimited, Buford, GA. The event will start at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.  The event will include a banquet-style lunch, entertainment and  "Glory Zone" testimonies from returning citizens about how reentry resources have help to empower them and changed their lives.
