LEDA and several other community partners gather at the Philadelphia Christian church to offer the formerly incarcerated a second chance at finding a job.

This event was open to the public, Justice involved, and formerly incarcerated people with over 20 area businesses and resource providers looking for workers.

The people that attended had the pleasure of learning about resources in Lafayette and the surrounding areas for current and formerly incarcerated people and their families.
