“Utahns face a grave reality when leaving prison. If we expect to reduce crime and create safer communities, we must provide opportunities for redemption,” said Right On Crime Utah Director, Katie Stahl. “Right On Crime’s Employer Engagement Forum will connect Utah employers with existing public programs, resources, and agencies to bridge the gaps and create opportunities for dependable and engaged employees.”
“I can’t think of anything more consistent with Utah and its values than allowing those that have been incarcerated an easier path to getting a job,” said Right On Crime Executive Director and former Utah U.S. Attorney, Brett Tolman. “And in fact, if you want to reduce crime, and you want to provide a strength to your communities and the families in your community, a job is the best indicator for success.”
