Tomorrow, the League of Young Voters Education Fund has been invited by Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis to attend an interactive summit and discussion: Re-entering Through Employment: A Comprehensive Approach to Reintegrating the Formerly Incarcerated at the U.S. Department of Labor.
The summit will focus on successful state/local approaches to re-entry, challenges to re-entry for special populations, and model programs from the business community. In addition, other federal agencies, including HUD, HHS, SBA, and EEOC, will host working sessions and Secretary Hilda L. Solis will offer a keynote address.
I will keep you all informed later on in the week on what were some of the key outcomes and takeaways from the discussion.
