New FAMM publication talks about Second Chance Act
I noticed from the FAMM website that the latest FAMMGram is available here, and includes a "cover story on the Second Chance Act, including the most frequently asked questions, and much more." Here is how the dicussion of the Second Chance Act starts:
The Second Chance Act, legislation designed to aid formerly incarcerated people coping with the challenges of reentry, was signed into law by President George W. Bush on April 9. Lawmakers from across the political spectrum and representatives from many of the advocacy groups who worked for more than five years to see this important legislation become law packed the signing ceremony in Washington.
“The country was built on the belief that each human being has limitless potential and worth. Everybody matters,” said Bush during the signing ceremony. “We believe that even those who have struggled with a dark past can fi nd brighter days ahead. One way we act on that belief is by helping former prisoners who’ve paid for their crimes — we help them build new lives as productive members of our society.”
