There is a summit being held on 11-17-16 in Baton Rouge, LA. It is supposed to
educate and galvanize business leaders on proven, effective justice reinvestment reforms and the significance of workforce reentry in reducing crime and addressing workforce needs.
Here is a link to the info & there is a link to the agenda. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/criminal-justice-reform-summit-tickets-28338003732
I hope to attend so I can voice my son's experience with trying to get a job having a felony conviction. There is legal discrimination against people with convictions. Until we keep bringing attention to this problem, nothing will change. The saddest thing is that I haven't seen any publicity about this seminar & only found it accidentally when doing a search for something else.
