This April, join Prison Fellowship and over 100 organizational partners in unlocking brighter futures for 65 million Americans living in the shadow of a criminal record. Join us for a special, community-wide prayer walk celebrating the dignity and potential of people with a criminal history.
The prayer walk is an opportunity to hear real-life stories of people searching for their second chance, and a reentry fair with legal, educational, employment, advocacy, and counseling services to equip returning citizens. Don’t miss this powerful part of Second Chance Month, a nationwide, month-long celebration of second chances. Together, we can spread hope and unlock brighter futures for people who have paid their debt to society!
The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Free food and t-shirts will be provided on a limited basis. Wear white to show support for second chances!
