Troy Rogers speaks at the Kingdom Center in Chattanooga in October 2021.

Think of a job fair where the tables are turned.

Business owners show up to meet with former felons who have served their time and are now entrepreneurs, building relationships with each other - and connecting with the community.

That’s the goal of the Returning Talent Entrepreneurial Expo - on Thursday, July 28th - at the Family Justice Center here in Chattanooga.

Troy Rogers is public safety coordinator for the City of Chattanooga.
