The Summit will give business leaders an opportunity to discover the enormous untapped potential of formerly incarcerated individuals or those who may have a criminal record and explore how bringing them into the workforce would benefit society and our economy.
The Summit will also provide access to the host of resources available to businesses curious about getting started with "Second ChanceEmployment," and will feature content-rich panel discussions on a variety of topics, from risk mitigation and financial incentives to building a vibrant Second Chance culture in your workplace.
Co-hosted by #cut50, the Second Chance Summit is Dave's Killer Bread Foundation's signature networking and outreach event. We look forward to meeting you there!
The action of President Obama over the next few months regarding clemency is going to be critical. While he has granted more clemencies than the past 10 presidents combined, including over a dozen who had Change.org petitions, the Department of Justice estimates roughly 2,000 more people qualify. And the clock is ticking.
On November 15, we’re going to bring families impacted by mandatory minimum sentencing and the War on Drugs to Washington, D.C. for a Hope for the Holidays event to share the real stories of impacted prisoners and their families and ask President Obama to grant an unprecedented number of clemencies to their loved ones for the holidays.
