Creating More Just,
Equitable, and Prosperous Futures

Seventy million people in this country have felony convictions, and almost a third are women. Most of the women are in prison for non-violent crimes and were often victims of sexual abuse and childhood trauma.

Upon release having a criminal felony conviction often disqualifies them from obtaining employment that would lead to long-term stability, leaving them to fall prey to cycles of poverty, housing instability, and a greater chance of recidivism.

OUR PROGRAM Is a commitment to employment
pathways for impacted women.

We Know

Every year, hundreds of thousands of formerly-incarcerated individuals reenter their communities, hoping to make a fresh start. We know that employment and safe and stable housing and health and wellness services are essential to successful reentry. Despite this critical need, nearly 44% of all formerly incarcerated women of color are unemployed. Even as we address the systemic issues that underpin this shocking statistic, we must change the narrative about formerly incarcerated women and build new pathways and modes of opportunity for women coming home from prison.

Pathways 4 Equity is not a traditional job training and placement program. As a critical element of our work, P4E provides training and technical assistance for our employer partners. Businesses who partner with The LOHM and P4E must understand, exemplify, and commit to true second chances. They must demonstrate— through their hiring, training, and promotion practices—that they share our understanding that a criminal conviction should NEVER define a person.
