In America I believe it is unfair that they send people to jail for years in the name of “rehabilitation” then brand them for life afterwards. I believe that if you have served your time or done probation & your crime was non-violent & non-sexual you should not be denied the right to live or work somewhere as long as you meet the financial/professional requirements. For too long in this country has it been okay to kick a man when he’s already down. We all know what race of people currently make up majority of the jail & prison population. Now imagine being punished your entire life for something you were said to already have been punished for. This is especially unfair to non-violent & non-sexual offenders. Imagine getting a felony DUI in 2015 & not being able to get that dream house or condo in 2020 & your credit score is a 750. This is a social injustice for all people trying to get a new or better start on life. This is also another loophole to discriminate against minorities since we are more likely to have petty crimes on our records. Today I’m asking that you sign this petition to get them to make it illegal to deny living or work to non-violent & non-sexual offenders
