3 years ago25 views



Washington President Barack Obama is set to announce new actions Monday to rehabilitate and reintegrate formerly incarcerated citizens to their communities, in his latest push for criminal justice reform. Obama will travel to Newark, New Jersey, to visit the Integrity House, a residential facility providing addiction treatment and recovery. The President will announce new actions to promote rehabilitation and reintegration, including $8 million in education grants from the Department of Education and tech training and jobs for individuals with a criminal record. Obama is also calling on Congress to "ban the box" on federal job applications that requires job applicants to state if they have a criminal record.
