Every person has dignity and potential. But one in four American adults has a criminal record, which limits their access to education, jobs, housing, and other things they need to reach that potential. Join with Prison Fellowship in celebrating "Second Chance Month" in April! Together we can unlock brighter futures for 65 million Americans who have repaid their debt to society.
OPPORTUNITIES TO SUPPORT SECOND CHANCES
SIGN THE PETITION
Tell Congress to declare April "Second Chance Month." Because people with a past can rise from failure, pay their debts, and embrace their second chance.
Spread the word about Second Chance Month to your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter.
LET'S MAKE APRIL A CELEBRATION OF SECOND CHANCES!
No life is beyond God's reach. Just as God forgives our sins and offers us a second chance, the Bible shows us that we can offer a second chance to those who have paid their debt to society. People with a past can still have a bright future, and their families and communities stand to benefit from their contributions.
President Trump officially recognized April 2018 as Second Chance Month, along with nine other jurisdictions and more than 150 partner organizations around the country. Prison Fellowship and its partners are working to reduce barriers keeping formerly incarcerated Americans from successfully rejoining society, and raising awareness of the importance of second chances through a press event, policy briefings, Second Chances 5Ks, "Second Chance Sunday" events held by churches, and coordinated petition and social media campaigns.
If you share our passion for breaking down barriers and creating opportunities for second chances, we invite you to partner with us and celebrate April 2018 as Second Chance Month!
