Because everyone deserves a second chance.
Agenda will include:
•Restore the Vote – Restore the Vote (RTV) coalition will provide a recap of the 2015 legislative session and outline next steps. RTV Minnesota is a coalition of groups, including the Second Chance Coalition, who believe that restoring the right to vote for those living in the community will make the law more clear and equitable, save government resources, and encourage positive participation.
•Drug Sentencing Reform – In light of a looming shortage of prison beds in Minnesota, we have an opportunity to convince policy makers to take a closer look at our harsh drug sentencing laws. We will discuss work currently being done at the legislature as well as the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission, and how the Coalition can help these efforts to produce meaningful reforms in 2016.
