Join Workforce Matters for a webinar from 2:30-3:30 pm eastern on May 2nd to learn about efforts that are underway at the federal, state, and local levels to take a closer look at the inequities in the criminal justice system and take steps to address them. From ending money bail to prosecutorial reform, the options for action vary and it can be hard for workforce development funders to know where to get involved. Join Tameshia Mansfield of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to learn how they are stepping into this space through the work of two of their grantees:
- Rebecca Vallas of the Center for American Progress will share information about the Clean Slate Campaign, a national effort to automatically clear or expunge the criminal records of millions of justice-involved individuals across the country.
- Will Heaton will talk about the work of JustLeadershipUSA, a group led by individuals who are directly impacted by the justice system, which ensures that their voice, expertise, and needs are central to campaigns that advocate for policies that end structural racism and ensure that underinvested communities receive and can access the resources they need. Through its #workingfutures campaign, JustLeadershipUSA is working at the intersection of criminal justice reform and economic justice.
