Reentry Training & Lunch with IABG
Individuals impacted by the criminal legal system face significant financial barriers, fines and fees, debts accumulated during incarceration, and barriers in the job search process.
In this training for case managers, we will discuss the criminalization of poverty and the impact of municipal fees on low-income communities. The training will include an overview of individuals’ rights related to sealing & expungement, collateral consequences of incarceration, and community resources.
The event is free and open to community organizations providing case management services, financial empowerment programs, or serving individuals who are formerly incarcerated.
