YSRP’s Senior Reentry Coordinator John Pace talks with The Jawncast podcast from KYW Newsradio about hiring formerly-incarcerated people.
December 19, 2019 – PHILADELPHIA, PA. The Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project, for the second year in a row, became recipients of a grant from the Eagles Social Justice Fund. The $15,000 grant will support YSRP’s reentry work with youth and Juvenile Lifer client-partners. The fund was established in 2018 to provide grants to organizations in the Greater Philadelphia area that work to reduce barriers to equal opportunity, with a specific focus on education, community and police relations, improving the criminal justice system, and other initiatives targeting poverty, racial equality, and workforce development.
The Fund is comprised of both players and front office staff, wherein one-to-one matching donations from players and the club create the funding pool. YSRP is grateful to the Eagles Social Justice Fund Leadership Council, which includes YSRP’s most favorite Eagles Rasul Douglas, Malcolm Jenkins, Avonte Maddox, Jalen Mills and Rodney McLeod. We are thrilled to be counted among this esteemed cohort, and are grateful for the players’ and staff’s commitment to creating greater opportunities for justice and equality in our region.
FLY, EAGLES, FLY!
