Many people who have committed crimes in their past can not obtain employment as easily as a non offender. Also a former criminal can not recieve housing assisstance as a non offender can. The people who have committed crimes and completed their sentence, should after a length of time for proof, be allowed to not have their mistakes haunt them and affect their children. An ex-felon can not receive the same benifits and assisstance as a non offender. These obstacles often have a huge factor as to why there are so many repeat offenders in the criminal justice system.

      I am signing this petition because my little brother is serving time for something he didn't do and I can't imagine his life will be any easier when he comes home. I pray everyday the God will make a change for people that are offenders and do there time , pay for their mistakes and can't live a normal live after. And also the people who get over sentenced because of discrimation. Let's make a change people! We have the power to do so!

      I am the daughter of a crime committing mother, and I believe that if shown appropriate, we (the children & families of crime offenders) should not lose benefits because of something we cannot control.

      TO GIVE PEOPLE THE CHANCE TO LEAD PRODUCTIVE LEGAL LIFESTYLES! AS WELL AS HOPEFULLY REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF REOFFENDERS DUE TO NO ALTERNATIVE OF SUPPORTING THEIR FAMILIES.
