Our mission is to provide free assistance to veterans who are navigating pending criminal cases
The Community Veteran Justice Project (CVJP) is dedicated to ensuring current and former military service members receive the information, support, and services they need to use California’s Veteran Statutes to improve their lives.
CVJP provides specific services, policy advocacy, and community education to assist justice-involved service members/veterans with obtaining alternative sentencing for some felonies, and diversion for misdemeanor cases. This can result in treatment rather than incarceration, some cases being dismissed, and records being sealed.
Glendale Tech on Tap in partnership with DishDivvy, will sponsor a screening of the excellent film Soufra at the Glendale Laemmle. Guests will enjoy a Soufra-inspired boxed meal to enjoy during the film, prepared by local DishDivvy HomeCooks.

Mariam sets out against all odds to change her fate by launching a successful catering company, “Soufra,” eventually expanding it into a food truck business with a diverse team of fellow refugee women.
