1 in 4 Americans has a criminal record – limiting their access to education, jobs, housing, and the tools needed to reach their potential.
We believe in providing second chances to those who have earned it. By empowering formerly incarcerated people with the ability to meaningfully contribute to society, we build a stronger future for all communities.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
Our community is working to remove barriers to self-sufficiency and economic success, like unnecessary occupational licensing regulations that limit access to employment. Across the country, we’re working with businesses to help them adopt nondiscriminatory hiring practices. And second-chance programs like The Last Mile to enable people to successfully re-enter society.
