In South LA, eight member institutions of One LA assembled at St. Brigid Catholic Church to launch their ‘Breaking Barriers’ to employment strategy.  Proposition 47, which permits individuals to clear their records of non-serious offenses, has the potential to make individuals more marketable as employees if proper paperwork is submitted.  

To prepare for the strategy, 30 leaders learned how to guide applicants through the process, while another group of leaders created a resume workshop and panel discussions on restorative justice in the schools and interview best practices.
