THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS NOT ALWAYS FAIR
Sometimes in the criminal justice system, the innocent are found guilty of committing a crime they did not commit. According to the United States District Judge, Jed Rakoff, tens of thousands of innocent people are in prison right now for crimes they never committed, because they were coerced into pleading guilty. Most of these people cannot afford a lawyer and must rely on a court-appointed attorney, who will push for a plea deal. It's not fair. That's why we need to do our part to help those who have been caught up in the system, find a way to get back on track.
REHABILITATION SHOULD BE MANDATORY
I used to think that rehabilitation was a mandatory part of our criminal justice system. It is not, but it should be. Without a clean place to start over, how can people who have paid for their crimes, become productive citizens again? Without the proper training and someone to take a chance on you, it would be near impossible. With your help, we can make a difference in their lives and ours.
RE-ENTRY INTO SOCIETY IS KEY!
The process of leaving prison can be very hard. When prisoners are released, they face an environment that is less then welcoming. They even find deterrents that keep them from becoming productive members in our communities. Within 3 years of release, 67.8 % will be arrested again. In five years that number goes up. But, if they are able to find a good place to live, have family support, stay healthy and find good paying jobs, they can re-enter society better than before. With your help, we can make that happen.
IMPROVE OUR ECONOMY – THAT’S GOOD FOR EVERYONE!
America is strong when everybody does their fair share! We need everyone working and making their own way. Therefore,we need to equip every ex- convict or homeless vet to be productive in the work force. But right now, more than 600,000 people who leave prison every year are not getting the support they need. We are here to fill that gap. We want to meet this need. Join us in making a difference that counts!
