"Every person has God-given dignity and potential. However, some 65 million Americans—or one in four adults—have a criminal record, which limits their access to education, jobs, housing, and other things necessary for a full and productive life.
In addition to widespread social stigma, there are more than 48,000 documented legal restrictions that weigh down those with a criminal record. While many people find hope and a new identity behind prison walls, they lose it a few steps past the prison gate when faced with barriers that can seem insurmountable.
Join Prison Fellowship as we celebrate “Second Chance Month” in April unlocking brighter futures for 65 million Americans who have repaid their debt to society.
The Second Chance 5Ks are community run/walk events that bring people together inside and outside of prison to raise awareness of the "second prison" and catalyze real, significant change in public attitudes and policy."
