Workforce Barriers in 2018 and the Criminalization of Poverty

Caryn York


Caryn York is Executive Director of the Job Opportunities Task Force (JOTF), an independent, statewide nonprofit organization that promotes policies and programs to help low-wage workers advance to high-wage jobs. Caryn is the first African American female to lead the twenty-two-year organization. 

Caryn works tirelessly to encourage key policymakers and stakeholders to adopt and support policies and programs that eliminate educational and employment barriers to facilitate the successful entry, or re-entry, of low-income workers and job seekers into the workforce. Caryn has been instrumental in leading numerous state and local policy reform efforts that focus on individuals with a criminal background including, but not limited to, ‘Ban the Box’ laws, expansion of criminal record expungement and shielding laws, the development, passage, and implementation of the Maryland Justice Reinvestment Act, and statewide bail reform. 

Caryn majored in International Studies at Washington College and has worked within state and local politics for over 10 years.
