Approximately 1 in 3 American adults has a criminal record, which limits their access to education, jobs, housing, and other things they need to reach that potential. The Gospel proclaims that every person has dignity and potential. People who have paid their debt to society should have an opportunity for a second chance, but thousands of legal barriers and social stigma make reintegration difficult.
If you share our passion for breaking down barriers and creating opportunities for second chances, use the drafted text here to thank the president for declaring April 2019 as Second Chance Month and ask your governor to recognize Second Chance Month in your state!
Unlocking second chances starts with raising awareness!
If your governor has already proclaimed April as Second Chance Month, the tool will populate a thank you note instead!
