California Should Prioritize Post-Prison Employment

The state of California is in dire economic straits. Governor-elect Jerry Brown will take the reigns of a state with 12% unemployment and crippling social problems. Among those problems are overcrowded prisons with revolving doors.

Eight million Californians have criminal records, and it is extremely difficult for former prisoners to find and keep jobs. A new report from Berkeley Law School outlines concrete recommendations for the state to improve post-prison employment opportunities, breaking the cycle of crime and poverty and helping to rebuild lives and communities. Send a copy of the report to Jerry Brown below and urge him to prioritize employment opportunities for people with criminal records.
