Long Beach, CA – June 14, 2024 – Ronnie’s House (501c3) is proud to host the 4th Annual Reentry Keys Summit on June 27th to 28th, a transformative event designed to empower justice-impacted individuals to “Switch the Hustle” and build brighter futures.

Shirin Senegal, Executive Director of Ronnie’s House and organizer of the Summit, has transformed personal tragedy into a powerful mission, dedicating her life to justice reform and reentry support. After losing her husband, Ronnie Senegal, to gun violence, Shirin channeled her grief into a mission to help others who have been justice-impacted. Ronnie, himself justice-impacted, represented himself in a three-strikes case, securing a hung jury, and began working with youth and those impacted by the system before his untimely death.

The Summit opens with the State of Reentry on June 27th, honoring Pastor Troy F. Vaughn, Co-Founder of The Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership (LARRP). Pastor Vaughn has been a champion and leader in advancing policy and funding to support grassroots organizations, and his influence has been instrumental in building bridges within the community.

On June 28th, Sam Lewis, Executive Director of ARC and a commissioner on the LA County Probation Oversight Commission, will deliver a keynote on the importance of credible messengers in reducing recidivism. Robert Robinson, MBA, Senior Program Manager for LA County’s Justice Care and Opportunities Department, will lead a funding panel, exposing nonprofits to diverse funding opportunities, including foundation, federal, and corporate sources.

The Reentry Keys Summit is essential for discussing innovative reentry strategies, sharing valuable resources, and fostering relationships within the Reentry Ecosystem. Attendees will benefit from keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, and access to trade schools, entrepreneurship resources, and funding.

“If you attend the Summit ready to ‘Switch the Hustle,’ we will provide the resources to help you succeed. There is nothing out of REACH, with the right support and mindset.” declared Shirin Senegal.

In 2025, the Reentry Keys Summit will expand to Atlanta, GA, in collaboration with Demmette Guidry, a music executive who has worked for Sony, Columbia, and Warner Brothers Records. An advocate for social justice and co-founder of the Black American Music Foundation (BAMF), Demmette comments, “Black music has been the backdrop of our lives, just as it was during the civil rights movement. It is time for it to be the soundtrack of justice reform, carrying the responsibility to inspire and drive meaningful change.”.

Shirin Senegal is a leader in Reentry Advocacy. In 2020, I spearheaded the Reentry Roundtable during Long Beach’s Racial Reconciliation and recently advanced inclusive hiring practices within Long Beach.

She has also pioneered launching one of the first Reentry Resource Website and App,, which connects probation, nonprofits, and justice-impacted individuals to essential resources and is the Author of the upcoming book “Switch The Hustle.” It is FREE for previously incarcerated individuals to attend the summit (limited availability).
