Today, Second Chance Tucson is holding its Re-Entry Job Fair, hoping to help formerly incarcerated people find stability through employment.

That’s from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Tucson Convention Center Grand Lobby and Ballroom, 260 S. Church Ave.

Around 35 community organizations and 25 employers are expected to attend all of which having expressed interest in hiring formerly incarcerated people.

Second Chance Tucson says around 300 people usually attend the job fair each year. And this year will be the first in-person fair since the pandemic.

Second Chance Tucson is a coalition of non-profit, faith-based, governmental, law enforcement agencies, and employers, founded in 2014 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles Pyle and former Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild.
