Frustrated by the state of our criminal justice system?
The Second Chance Coalition has been building momentum for change at the legislature. In 2013 we helped pass the statewide expansion of Ban-The-Box, and last year we helped to reform Minnesota's expungement laws to allow for meaningful second chances. Be a part of the movement this year as we work to expand voting rights for people who have been disenfranchised by a felony conviction and reduce the severity of Minnesota's drug sentencing laws. You can make a difference. Meet with state law makers & rally support for criminal justice reform. For more information, please see the Second Chance Coalitions Legislative Agenda.
|Gov. Dayton signed the juvenile and criminal records expungement bill into law May 14, 2014. Designed to help individuals rebuild their lives after contact with the criminal justice system, the legislation will provide thousands of Minnesotans with meaningful second chances. After recent MN Supreme Court decisions, many criminal and juvenile records were prohibited from expungement, indefinitely impairing access to basic needs, such as employment and housing. Criminal records have potentially devastating consequences for family formation, social cohesion, and life prospects. By providing reasonable and meaningful relief from these records, thousands of Minnesotans will have better opportunities for employment, housing, and education.
