Welcome to Second Chance Month! Prison Fellowship® and our diverse group of partner organizations are raising awareness this month of the hardships former prisoners face upon their return to society. Will you join us?
Heather Rice-Minus, director of government affairs at Prison Fellowship®, joined Values & Capitalism's Meredith Schultz to discuss the core principles of restorative criminal justice reform and how Christians should act to advance it. Justice reform is a bipartisan issue in which the Church needs to be a partner and leader.
Finding a job after prison can be hard. The weight of a criminal record can make job hunters lack confidence and optimism. Employment is essential, though, to successfully integrating within society. Many times it is also a parole requirement. So how do you find a job when you have a record?
Update 3/31/2017–U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) introduced a resolution that would designate April 2017 as "Second Chance Month."
