Myrie Teaching

NYS Senator Zellnor Myrie, D-20th Dist.

"[The job fair is] a step toward investing in you. Rehabilitation starts right here, while you are here."

"I think the training is very important for employers. I now know that the steps I am taking is the best practice, and I know I am not being bias against anyone."
Tiara Johnson, East New York Restoration LDC

"People with criminal records are a part of the general public and if you want to do public good, it is important to be aware of all of the barriers in place that prevent people from finding employment, and from being stable in their life."

Denia Tavarez, Commonpoint Queens
