BMI PILLARS: Criminal Justice
The Criminal Justice pillar is important because we discovered that those who have been convicted do not have the opportunity to get government assistance. Which in turn if one cannot find a job or get housing they feel as though they have no hope.
We are dedicated to getting out into the community to do expungement fairs to help those who have charges that are eligible to be dropped. By doing this we are able to get more black and brown people back into the workforce and out of the system. Our hope is that these same citizens are able to go back into the community lead
The Criminal Justice Pillar, in collaboration with other community-based organizations, is committed to serving men and communities impacted by the criminal justice system in the following areas:
