A Fresh Start

As someone effected by addiction, making the wrong decisions, and landing in the arms of the Department Of Justice, I am finding that I must fight to become a productive citizen in society. Our mistakes and consequences do not define us as people. We are hardworking citizens that strive to give back to our society and make it a better place for others like us. Prison houses some phenomenal individuals that simply lost their way. Supporting the Fresh Start Act will decrease recividism and promote humanity. 

Support HR 5043 The Fresh Start Act which will allow the expungement of Federal felonies. Currently, the only solution to redeem a Federal record is through presidential pardon. The individual will, of course, have to prove they are contributing to society in a productive manner. 

In a nation that houses the largest population of imprisoned individuals in the world, we must take action. We must give back dignity. We must not force an individual to pay for their mistakes after their dues are paid. 

See the link to the bill in the comments.
