On April 20th, 2021, Empower Missouri held a Day of Action to talk about Criminal Justice Reform in Missouri. Our panelists discussed HB 316, which would provide thousands of new job opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals. Missouri should be ‘Smart on Crime’ to best serve all our neighbors. HB 316 would remove restrictions from those with prior felony convictions from working in establishments that sell alcohol or lottery tickets. This would open up new employment opportunities for thousands of Missourians who currently aren’t allowed to work in many gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores & restaurants.
