EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE's Fundraiser:

End Free Failing

EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE's Photo

THE STORY:

America won independence from Great Britain in 1776 because of British oppression, particularly about such issues as freedom of religion and taxation without representation. America became a free country with civil rights guaranteed to its citizens.

However, this principle is failing. America has more of its citizens in jail or prison, or on active parole or probation than any time in its history. According to sources cited in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_incarceration_rate), 7.2 million Americans fell into one of these categories in 2006. This does not include many millions more who are currently disadvantaged from prior legal issues, nor many millions who have not yet been charged with their first crime.

America is spending $60 billion to incarcerate its citizens, with little hope of reinstating full social justice. We need to help Congresses fight crime to promote the Constitution's goals "to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence [sic], promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity".

Please help us reach out to your representatives today. Thank you.
