I'm urging you to use your influence to bring the Second Chance Act to the floor of the U.S. Senate, and to vote for it, because I believe it would be effective in keeping our homes and communities safe.
Most prisoners now in federal custody will be released into society, but many do not have the skills they need to function effectively as free men and women. The Second Chance Act would fund programs to help ex-convicts gain employment, develop parenting skills and provide other necessary support. This in turn will help reduce the rate at which released felons commit new crimes and return to prison.
As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, I encourage you to support bringing the bill to the Senate floor, and to vote for it. Thank you for considering my opinion.
