JOIN US FOR: MASS INCARCERATION -Vs- Successful Reentry. What’s working, what’s not?
Following the success of their initial series last summer, a coalition of civil rights groups is partnering again for a 10-city tour of Virginia to raise awareness around justice issues that affect people with criminal records, and to provide direct services. Called the Mobile Justice Tour, the event re-launches on Saturday, December 14, with a focus on three key issues: civil rights restoration for citizens with felony convictions, removing questions about an applicantâ€™s criminal background from initial employment forms, and sentencing reform to end mass incarceration in Virginia.
