Individuals impacted by the justice system faces tremendous obstacles that prevent them from achieving economic mobility. In the U.S. there are thousands of collateral consequences. These are legal and regulatory restrictions that limit or prohibit people convicted of crimes from accessing employment, business and occupational licensing, housing, voting, education, and other rights, benefits, and opportunities.
In this webinar we will learn strategies and approaches that have proven to help people who have been impacted by the justice system to get on a path towards economic mobility. The session will challenge us to be thoughtful in how we prepare, train, and place participants in jobs and career pathways that can transform their lives and break the cycle of poverty.
