Addressing the Challenges of Poverty national conference presentation spotlight

The justice system is not designed to rehabilitate the incarcerated.

Though people have left the prison walls, they are still imprisoned by their records, unable to find work, and unable to get ahead on their fees and fines. Learn about how the justice system is rigged against the poor. Realize how criminal and civil cases effect low-income defendants. Understand what can be done to finally free people from the confines of the justice system.

Learning objectives include:

  • Understand the legal barriers to getting ahead and staying ahead.
  • Walk away with possible solutions and methods of assisting clients.
  • Learn how the Miami Valley Community Action Partnership works and what aspects might be duplicated by your program.
