Between 60%-75% of ex-offenders are unemployed a year after their release. Is entrepreneurship an answer to America's high recidivism rate? Explore the organizations and people helping returning citizens' path from prison to self-sufficiency.
The event will start with 60 second overviews of each organization, business or speaker. Each organization will be stationed at a table where attendees can sit and talk intimately about the speaker's story. Every 15 mins attendees will have a chance to switch to a different table. The goal is to have real, small group connection where the conversation flows organically for each group in order to break the barriers associated with returning citizens.
A light buffet is included. The bar will be open for purchase. Seating is limited.
