Legal Brief: Second Chance Month
Show Notes

On this week's Legal Brief, Justine and Amanda highlight "Second Chance Month," a time to raise awareness about the difficulties returning citizens, AKA formerly incarcerated individuals, face when reentering society. Returning citizens generally lack basic resources, have limited ability to obtain housing, employment, credit, and education.  Justine and Amanda discuss some of the many organizations that have pioneered Second Chance Month, and some of the elected officials that are helping to make things happen!
