Vice President Mike Pence, Ivanka Trump coming to Jacksonville on Friday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Jacksonville to visit an organization that helps people get back into the workforce after incarceration.


Pence will visit Operation New Hope, which has a Ready4Work reentry program that helps people get training, support and skills to help them get a job after being incarcerated.

HUD Secretary Ben Carson said during a March 2018 visit to Jacksonville that he said he wants to see similar programs be implemented across the country.

Pence will also visit Miller Electric Company on Jacksonville's Southside. Pence said in a tweet that the family-owned business brings "workers off the sidelines and back into the workforce!"

Pence will be accompanied by Ivanka Trump, who is President Donald Trump's daughter and serves as advisor to the POTUS on job creation, economic empowerment, workforce development and entrepreneurship.

The VP was previously in the River City to talk about the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.
