Jobs for Freedom/1400 Jobs Campaign
April 4, 2018•12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Come learn about the campaign led by the Bay Area Black Worker Center and Justice Reinvestment Coalition that resulted in the Alameda County Re-Entry Hiring Program. The program aims to place Alameda county residents with felony convictions into county jobs. After decades of funding job training programs with abysmal outcomes for placing people into permanent employment, this program is poised to make a difference. Find out more about the model and lessons learned.
