I think one of the things we might try and do is build a network of supporters...for instance when a company hires an ex-offender and things go well. Then that company should be reconized for that fact, in the community somehow maybe tell the city council then that company could be an example to other business owners. Quite possibly setting a trend. I f we all did that in our own communities it just might catch on. I don't know just a thought.
