Interested in meeting with your legislator at the Second Chance Day on the Hill?

Want to feel more prepared discussing Second Chance legislation?

The most impactful way for you to influence the polices that impact you and                                    those you care about is by meeting in person with your legislators. On March                                            7th, the Minnesota Second Chance Coalition will be hosting Second Chance Day                                      on the Hill. Attend this prep session to learn about the details of Second Chance                                      Day on the Hill and how to effectively talk to your legislators. We will also be                                      discussing the legislative priorities for this year’s Day on the Hill: Restore the                                          Vote, Fines and Fees, and Probation Reform.

Impacted individuals are welcome to attend this event.  Service providers are                                            encouraged to bring guests that are affected by these issues.
