I have learned that Gov. Ted Strickland has signed House Bill 113, which guarantees faith-based organizations the opportunity to present re-entry programs in adult and youth prisons. Thank you for your support of this important bill.
As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, a Christian grassroots organization, I consider prison re-entry an important social justice issue. Prisoners who are actively prepared for life as free men and women are far less likely to commit new crimes and return to prison than those who have no such preparation. By voting to give access to qualified not-for-profit organizations to teach life skills inside state institutions, you have helped to truly rehabilitate lives and keep our communities safer.
I appreciate your vote!
