Americans for Prosperity Marks Second Chance Month

Apr 19, 2022 by AFP

AFP-KY Coalitions Director shares her experience with a second chance

Danville, KY –  Americans for Prosperity- Kentucky (AFP-KY) today issued a statement in recognition of the significance of Second Chance Month. Our criminal justice system should promote both accountability and redemption, which necessitates second chances for individuals with a criminal record.

Acquiring a second chance provides people with dignity and allows them to achieve their potential as contributing members of our community. Employees with a criminal record will -on average- stay with their employers 10% longer than those without a criminal record.

AFP-KY Coalitions Director Nikki Rothwell issued the following statement:

“In light of Second Chance Month, I am grateful that AFP-KY has given me the opportunity to make the most of my second chance while I continue the journey of discovering my best self on the other side of a felony. I am so excited about what the future holds for me as we advocate for positive policy changes for people like myself moving forward.”
