Why Millions of Returning Citizens Can’t Get Jobs and Why You Should Care
May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This event is co-hosted by Capital One Bank and LEAP, an education and re-entry program for women transitioning from prison. During the 1st hour they will host a panel discussion about the challenges faced by returning citizens.
Presenters will share how hiring them may help the bottom lines of businesses, and make our community a kinder and safer place to live. A local employer who has hired employees with a record, an employment specialist from Transition, Inc., and a representative of LEAP will share their experiences with returning citizens in need of a second chance.
The Miracle Mile Café will close the café early for clients that day, but will welcome anyone who would like to join a connection experience from 6 to 8 pm.
Accessibility: Capital One Bank seeks to make this event as accessible as possible to individuals of all different abilities and needs and will provide the following accommodations: accessibility for anyone with mobility issues and nursing rooms. For questions or in need of additional accommodations, please call 305-506-9000 at least 24 hours in advance of the event.
