Impact Justice & Equity Solutions Inc. is a IRS 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization committed to the effort to erradicate systemic oppression for the most disadvantaged individuals within society particularly those impacted by the justice system. Our goal is to shfit the culture of the workforce delivery system by putting an end to discrimination in hiring, advocating for ocupational licensing reform, and increasing workforce productivity for people with criminal histories.
The U.S. incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation in the world, which in turns cripples the American Worforce by removing skilled workers leading to a loss of $78-$87 billion in GDP. Criminal convictions can often lead to a lifetime ban on employment due to bias and unfair hiring practices. We believe that an equitable society is one in which people have equal access to education, health care, justice, and job opportunities. Our research informed strategies will help us achieve succesful outcomes for our clients, build strategic partnerships, and affect change in our pursuit of socio-economic justice.
Impact Justice & Equity Solutions embraces differences and understands the benefits that it brings to the workplace. Diversity starts in hiring practices. It helps businesses to facilitate cross-cultural communcation, drive innovation, improve work productivity and stay competitive in diverse markets.
Through advocacy, we seek to reshape America's broken Criminal Justice System which has deep seeded roots in discrimination and inequality. Our vison is that we would have a system that truly places rehabilitation and restoration as driving principles as opposed to punishment based approaches of the past.
