National Call on Justice Corps Leads the Way for Possible Multi-State Application

Last Thursday, the promised national call on Justice Corps took place. Eleven states were there, interested in leveraging California’s brilliant idea and the Corporation for National and Community Service’s vision of students working for service and change into a national access network. It was a great call, and I am very encouraged, as well as grateful for the help and information provided by the California Courts, the DOJ Access Initiative, and the Corporation.
The core of the call, introduced by Karen Lash of the DOJ’s Access Initiative, was presentations by Martha Wright of the California AOC, about how Justice Corps works in California, by Danielle Hirsch, on the Illinois Initiative, and by Martha Tierney of the Corporation for National and Community Service, which funds AmeriCorps.
