Workshops planned for ex-offenders

exoffenderUnited Workers and Maryland Legal Aid are beginning a series of workshops for ex-offenders facing barriers to employment. “We know that the human rights of ex-offenders are being violated,” said Legal Aid Acting Chief Counsel Peter Sabonis. “We know that employers are breaking the law when they discriminate against them. At the workshops we will share strategies and ideas for gaining full-employment and securing our human rights.” The first workshop is scheduled for Monday, June 8 at Maryland Legal Aid, 500 E. Lexington St. (on bus routes 10, 23, 15, 20, 1, 2, 36, 8, 19, 35, 5, 6), from 5-7 pm (food provided). Call 410-230-1998 for more details.
