WHY ARE WE NOT A PROTECTED CLASS?
Having a criminal record is like wearing a scarlet letter!
Those with criminal records are discriminated 20 times more than any other discriminatory base. Weather it is being Black, gay, Muslim, Asian, trans gender, have a disability, being a woman, old, poor. We are the last to be hired, first to be fired. 10 times more likely to be homeless. Disqualified from voting. Disqualified from public assistance. WHY?
SUPPORT THE HOUSELESS
Housing has a major impact on a person’s health, economic, and social outcomes. Inability to obtain quality housing has negative health and social consequences that can perpetuate the cycle of poverty and detachment from the labor market.
Justice 4Housing is seeking resources to assist those returning home from incarceration and those who have been discriminated, marginalized and targeted by the criminal punishment system.
