You are invited to The Power of Opportunities: How Supporting People with Criminal Records is Good for Public Safety, Strengthens our Economy, and Provides a Better Future for Arizona

1 in 3 Americans, including over 2 million people in Arizona, have some type of criminal record. Even old and minor records can prevent people from getting safe housing and jobs. The unemployment and underemployment of people with records costs the United States economy an estimated $87 billion each year. Please join us on Dec. 6 from 10:30-11:45 MST for a conversation about how supporting people coming out of the justice system benefits communities, strengthens
our economy, promotes public safety, and is good for working families. The panel event and Rasa’s Record Clearance Clinic and Resource Fair are free to attend. If you or someone you know could benefit from this event, please RSVP here.
