Equal Opportunity Day



Equal Opportunity Day educates the public and corporate and civic leaders about the challenges of achieving equality while honoring local equal opportunity advocates. Today, this tradition takes on added urgency as the disparities for the working poor and families in poverty intensify in a challenging economy.

  • Criminal justice reform:  expanding and replicating highly successful programs like “Women in Recovery Program” that changes the way we see the person who is in a cycle of incarceration for non-violent crimes;
