Know Your Rights Webinar Series September Calendar

We believe it is important for people engaged with and impacted by the justice system to know their rights. That is why Safer Foundation, in partnership with the Women’s Justice Institute (WJI), is conducting a series of webinars to help people who are incarcerated and people with arrest and conviction records know their rights, know their remedies and also help connect them to legal and reentry resources.

Professional clothing donations are key in helping our clients look the part in their search for gainful employment.
