Event description

Description

A national, bipartisan consensus is emerging that recognizes we must address the growth of incarceration and its lifetime of punishment. In order to expand economic opportunity and address unemployment and substance abuse we must address the myriad of collateral consequences incarceration visits upon families and our communities.

The Employers' Breakfast for Second Chances will give business leaders and legislators an opportunity to discover the enormous untapped potential of formerly incarcerated individuals and further understand how bringing them into the workforce would benefit our economy and state.

There will also be information about resources available to businesses interested in getting started with "Second Chance Employment," from risk mitigation to financial incentives.

Kanawha Community Re-Entry Council & Call to Action for Racial Equality (CARE) Coalition invite you to learn how hiring ex-offenders and supporting second chances is good for business and good for our state.

A delicious breakfast provided by local business Ms. Groovy's Catering.

Speakers include: Secretary Gayle Manchin, Dana Eddy (Public Defender Services), Pastor Matthew Watts (Hope Development Inc), Sue Julian and Barbara Steinke (Laotong Yoga), Amber Miller, Laura Jones McGuire, and more....
