Project ReNu helps ex-offenders battle what's on RAP sheet
from The Crime Report
Paroled from prison in August 2010, Sandra France was bent on finding a job that steered young people away from the drug addiction and drug-related crimes that had her cycling in and out of prison for 35 years. That job hunt, however, initially bore little fruit for the 50-year-old ex-offender. Then she heard about Project ReNu, launched in early 2012 by the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Center for NuLeadership On Urban Solutions to help the formerly incarcerated figure out precisely whether their recorded criminal histories, or record of arrests and prosecutions, were undercutting their employment prospects and, where possible, boosting the ex-offenders' image among potential employers.
