“WHEN THE BEST LEADER’S WORK IS DONE THE PEOPLE SAY, ‘WE DID IT OURSELVES.’ ” ~ LAO TZU
For the month of January 2019, Los Angeles leaders and community members came together and broke into 3 workgroups to collaboratively discuss the P2E grant. It is intended to support regional planning efforts, fund regional plan implementation, and provide resources for direct services to the formerly incarcerated and other justice-involved individuals. It also sets aside specific resources for both supportive services and earn and learn activities which were identified as a major gap by current grantees and local service providers.
There’s so much behind the scenes work that happens that make a powerful impact on the community. The brainstorming sessions and group activities were insightful. Let’s collectively improve labor market outcomes and set people up for success!
