Why do we celebrate Second Chance Month®? For most of us, our worst choices don’t trap us forever. But unreasonable laws block the path to a brighter future for millions of Americans with a criminal record—often long after they’ve been held accountable. These barriers limit their access to education, work, housing, and more. Right now, many Americans are ready to leave crime behind and positively contribute to their communities.
President Biden has declared April 2023 as Second Chance Month!
However, the Senate has yet to act.
You can make a difference by simply asking your U.S. senators to declare April as Second Chance Month—it’s quick and easy!
