Many legal services clients are formerly incarcerated people. Returning to jail or prison can be the worst development for our clients’ well-being. To ease reentry and reduce recidivism, we can propose and support state legislation that reunifies families and communities, and restores human and civil rights. This webinar will explore advocacy tactics and the fundamentals of the legislative process. As a case study, we will use AB 218, 2013’s “Fairness in Government Hiring Practices Act.
