The City of Memphis, Tenn., announced a new partnership intended not only to reduce crime, but to give those who had a history of crime a second chance. Mayor Strickland said the city is partnering with Kroger to provide job opportunities for graduates of the city's Manhood University and Women Offering Women's Support.
The mayor said this partnership gives women and men in the community a second chance. "If somebody who has a criminal background finds a job and turns that job into a career, there's very little chance they'll go back to a life of crime," he said. Kroger said right now there's no limit to how many people they're hoping to help with this new partnership.
