This event will offer education, dialogue, and an opportunity to meet with lawmakers to advocate for the needs of our community. It is scheduled to take place on Monday during National Reentry Week, coinciding with April, which is federally designated as National Second Chance Month. During this luncheon, we will engage in meaningful conversations surrounding pending legislation pertinent to our community.

Some of the bills that will be discussed include:
