Second Chance Month

LET’S MAKE APRIL A CELEBRATION OF SECOND CHANCES!

In 2017, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution declaring April “Second Chance Month,” and in 2018, Prison Fellowship will continue the national effort to reduce barriers that keep formerly incarcerated Americans from successfully rejoining society. Prison Fellowship worked alongside more than 65 other organizations to promote Second Chance Month in 2017, and we will continue our collaborative efforts this year. Prison Fellowship is organizing awareness efforts, including a press event, policy briefings, Second Chances 5Ks, “Second Chance Sunday” events held by churches, as well as coordinated petitions and social media campaigns. We invite you to help declare and celebrate April 2018 as Second Chance Month!
