The Minnesota Second Chance hosts monthly Steering Committee meetings, which are always held on the second Wednesday of each month.  These meetings are open to anyone who is interested in attending.  Because the coalition recognizes that monthly meetings are difficult for our members to attend, we host two Full Membership Meetings each year.  Our last Full Membership meeting was on February 10th, 2016.  We also send out monthly newsletters the week after our monthly meetings to keep everyone updated on events and announcements. 

Upcoming Steering Committee Meetings:
Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 Location: MN Adult and Teen Challenge
Wednesday, April 13th, 2016 Location: Emerge

Frustrated by the state of our criminal justice system?  
The Second Chance Coalition has been building momentum for change at the legislature.  In 2013 we helped pass the statewide expansion of Ban-The-Box, and last year we helped to reform Minnesota's expungement laws to allow for meaningful second chances.  Be a part of the movement this year as we work to expand voting rights for people who have been disenfranchised by a felony conviction and reduce the severity of Minnesota's drug sentencing laws. You can make a difference.  Meet with state law makers & rally support for criminal justice reform. For more information, please see the Second Chance Coalitions Legislative Agenda.
