As a former inmate in the Colorado Department of Corrections, I became involved in the initiatives of Prison Fellowship. In April 2017, I was asked to attend the Second Chance Month hearing at the State Capital, where they passed the resolution with flying colors! Now, the President of the United States proclaims April as Second Chance month. SO AWESOME!
President Donald J. Trump Proclaims April 2018 as Second Chance Month
During Second Chance Month, our Nation emphasizes the need to prevent crime on our streets, to respect the rule of law by prosecuting individuals who break the law, and to provide opportunities for people with criminal records to earn an honest second chance. Affording those who have been held accountable for their crimes an opportunity to become contributing members of society is a critical element of criminal justice that can reduce our crime rates and prison populations, decrease burdens to the American taxpayer, and make America safer.
