Successful Reentry and Employment 101 Training

On September 14th, the Coalition hosted a training called Reentry and Employment 101. Community Legal Services, the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations, Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity, and RISE all sent experts to educate over 70 people on important subject areas: employment rights as they relate to criminal records, Fair Chance Hiring laws ("ban the box") in Philadelphia, remedies and resources, and employer incentives like tax credits and federal bonding. Thank you to our presenters, attendees, and the Community College of Philadelphia's Reentry Support Project for hosting us!
