The Economic Justice Program is a 360-degree workforce program to support the development of participants’ skills to obtain and retain employment, learn and develop career goals and help employers in creating safe, inclusive, and affirming work spaces.

The Economic Justice program (EJP) is a unique, collaborative initiative designed to  help create inclusive workplaces and job readiness for the LGBTQ+ community in Sacramento County. By teaming up with Black, Indigenous, Queer, Transgender, People of Color (BIQTPOC) leaders and local businesses EJP will strategically address the barriers LGBTQ+ and people of color face during their journey to becoming employed, in a truly innovative method. EJP seeks to disrupt the vicious impact that racism, homophobia, and transphobia have on social mobility. This program will provide the following services: job referrals and career coaching; navigating being “out” at work or transitioning on the job; resume review and managing references; personal branding; hiring and community events; and legal services.

“You Betta Work!” Career Fair

EJP has produced two successful career fairs in the past six months, bringing over 40 employers and 250 job seekers together. Of these, over forty employment connections were made. The “You Betta Work!” Career Fair was also a place where jobseekers were able to receive professional headshots, on the spot interviews with featured employers, and amazing networking opportunities with employers hiring in the Sacramento region.
