Give felons a second chance!

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

People with felony records are unable to be productive citizens because they are unable to work in a professional organization. We need to change the law to allow these felonies to be omitted from their records after they serve their time. We need a chance to show that we are rehabilitated and we want to contribute to society!
There are currently 143 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

I am personally affected by this law. I have a possession with intent charge from 1991 and a obstructing justice charge from 2006. I went to addiction treatment and returned to school to earn a bachelor of arts degree in psychology and I am currently in my second year of working on my Master of Science in Counseling. I have worked hard, as others have, to change my life. I am so frustrated because after all of my hard work, I am still unable to gain employment because of my record. I have paid my dues and proven that I am rehabilitated!
