The Second Chance Act was first passed by Congress with overwhelming bipartisan support in 2008. Since then, states have seen dramatic decreases in recidivism rates as tens of thousands of men, women and youth returning home from prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities have been served through mentoring, family-based substance abuse treatment, and other evidence-based reentry programs made available through the Second Chance Act. These critical programs may be in jeopardy if Congress does not pass the Second Chance Reauthorization Act. Tell your representatives to support the Second Chance Reauthorization Act!
