The  Skills and Experience for the Careers of Tomorrow (SECTOR)(Spanish) Program offers training and paid work experience in sectors that provide career pathway opportunities and family-sustaining wages for people impacted by the justice system. Participants gain skills and credentials that are in-demand by employers; earn financial assistance while they’re enrolled; and get help landing a job after completing the program. Career Coaches with lived experience of justice involvement provide job readiness services and retention support once placed in a job.

LA Free the Vote

LA Free the Vote

LA Free the Vote is an initiative born of two LA Board of Supervisors’ motions in 2018 tasking County agencies to collaborate in a taskforce with stakeholders to civically engage and register to vote justice-involved individuals. LA Free the Vote aims to make LA County a national leader in systematically offering voter registration and education to the justice-involved population and encouraging this population to vote. Recognizing that the justice-involved population sits at the intersection of multiple underserved communities, LA Free the Vote brings an intentional County government focus to proactively outreaching to this population whose voices are important to our civic life. Check out the LA Free the Vote  website  for key updates and to sign up for the newsletter. You can also download the LA Free the Vote  flyer, as well as a voter registration training  PowerPoint and accompanying  training recording.
