Did you know it is estimated that more than 30 million individuals in the U.S. have some type of felony? Disproportionately this impacts people of color as 72% of justice - impacted community members are not able to find full time employment, while there is a recidivism rate of 71% within five years.
We know it is no coincidence that these numbers are nearly the same and communities truly pursuing equity need an intentional plan for expanding opportunities for justice-involved neighbors. We are excited to partner Sherman Wise, founder of Road HOME, to introduce justice-involved community members to opportunities in technology, the medical field, entrepreneurship and much more. Taking our successful youth model and scaling it to cultivate an inclusive economic ecosystem that leads to more racial wealth equity.
We are on a mission!
