Default Job Recruitment Fair at Queensboro

So glad to see this! Moving in the right direction.

"Twelve employers, along with a former inmate now working as a union carpentry representative, met with 78 incarcerated men Oct. 4 at the Queensboro Correctional Facility in New York City.

It was the first time employers have gone inside a New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision prison to conduct interviews and make job offers; the event was another building block of the ILR School’s Criminal Justice and Employment Initiative. Since December 2017, the ILR program has been training hundreds of employers and incarcerated people, upstate and downstate, to overcome job barriers such as inaccurate criminal records that often thwart post-prison employment."

That is amazing. Haven't been back on prison talk since my (now ex) bf was released in 2010. But I have a friend in Clinton coming home soon. Just happy to hear that, something positive is happening.
