Congress, Employers willing to give ex-offenders a second chance, the public

It is utterly unrealistic to think that people with no way to live will not resort to other means of survival. Ex-offenders deserve a second chance at life. Once their time has be served and their debt paid they deserve to be given an opportunity to earn an honest living wage, and to help reduce the rate of recidivism by not returning to prison or jail. Hire an ex-offender and give them a second chance at life. Please support the Advocates Against Felon Employment Discrimination Act.

Signed,

This is a bill created by me, Maymie Chandler-Pratt. This bill is asking for the modification of hiring requirements for people with felonies and misdemeanors from 7 to 10 years to a more realistic waiting period of  2 to 5 years depending on the offense committed. My bill has been accepted and reviewed by Congressman Mark Takano and was hand delivered by him to Washington, DC for further review and consideration. We need to get as many signatures as possible to see this modification come to fruition. Please help by signing the petition and taking the pledge to support this bill. Thank you
