The American federal prison system is in desperate need of reform. With the passage of the FIRST STEP Act in 2018, criminal justice reform has gained increasingly more (much-deserved) attention at the national level. The goal of the FIRST STEP Act is to decrease the likelihood that a person will commit another offense after being released from prison.

What else is being done? Join AFF-Raleigh as we host Brian Hamilton, founder of Inmates to Entrepreneuers, a national program that helps people with criminal records start their own small businesses. Inmates to Entrepreneurs is supported by the Brian Hamilton Foundation, which provides access to entrepreneurship to people who wouldn’t otherwise have it.

Join us for happy hour and discussion.
