WELCOME TO THE LEARN HUB! LEARN STANDS FOR LEGAL EDUCATION AND REINTEGRATION.
The LEARN Hub is an online resource center that provides information to help people navigate the justice system with ease. Offering information that is free to the public, the Hub features diverse resources from services that mostly cater to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. These resources were picked and created specifically to help these communities navigate barriers with culturally-informed support. Every resource in the Hub aims to address the complicated challenges that those navigating the justice system, and their families, face.
