The Second Chance Reauthorization Act
As a result of the Second Chance Act, states have seen a dramatic decrease in recidivism as tens of thousands of returning citizens were served through faith-based mentoring, substance abuse treatment, and other evidence-based reentry programs made available through the Second Chance Act. These critical programs are in jeopardy if Congress doesn’t reauthorize the act.
The bill has passed out of the House Judiciary Committee, and now needs to come to the House floor for a vote. Your representative needs to hear from you today about just how important this bill is to restoring lives, families, and protecting communities!
