This bill will create opportunities for qualified health care professionals with criminal records to get their health care license for jobs, such as nurses, doctors, occupational therapists or respiratory therapists.
Our fight for justice takes on many issues, strategies and tactics. As the world changes, Community Renewal Society must commit to self-reflection. We must examine how we move in power and peace, how we engage, how we train, and, most of all, how we listen to our communities. Our roots must not only go deep, but we must also broaden our understanding of how we live out God’s love and call to justice with each other.
