ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University is working to get the word out about criminal justice reforms in Georgia.

A new law provides more help for offenders entering, proceeding through and leaving the criminal justice system.

ASU is partnering with Albany's Second Chance to host a record registration workshop on Tuesday to help offenders overcome barriers for employment.

"When you 3.8 million people staying home, their not paying taxes, they have no jobs. So society needs to do some more to provide them opportunities where they can learn some skills, get some skills and then get a job," said Dr. Ochie of ASU.

"Employability, the credit score classes, the housing information that was given to me," said George Mims.

That workshop will take place on Tuesday at ASU's criminal justice building at 10 a.m.
