Justice for Work DC Launch Event

RSVP: https://justiceforwork.splashthat.com/

Holding a job is crucial for ex-offenders seeking to reintegrate into society. Yet, lawmakers have too often erected barriers for those most in need of a job in the interest of protecting a citizenry nervous about their reappearance in society.  This despite employment representing one of the biggest factors for lowering recidivism. Justice for Work is a coalition of organizations spanning the ideological spectrum which seeks to respond to proposals for mandatory, government-run background checks and fingerprint collection in private industry hiring practices.
 
Please join us for our official launch on April 17. A panel discussion featuring former law enforcement officers, an ex-offender, and policy and legal experts will be followed by an open bar and social.
