MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Montgomery District Attorney Daryl Bailey is hosting a job fair Tuesday specifically for ex-offenders, saying a criminal background is one of the biggest hurdles ex-offenders have to clear while they’re trying to get back on their feet.

It’s often the one thing that keeps them from getting into the workforce, so he’s pulled together a group of companies to connect with those former criminals, willing to give them a chance.

This is the third job fair of its type Bailey has organized since July of 2021. There will also be agencies there that provide resources to help ex-offenders continue that transition.

This job fair will run from 9 a.m. until noon at the Multiplex at Cramton Bowl and will include more than 40 employers and resource providers, including:
