The Second Chance Day on the Hill Minnesota, Feb. 11

The Second Chance Day on the Hill Minnesota, this year on Feb. 11 at the State Capitol, is sponsored and supported by a partnership of nonprofits and companies that believe ex-offenders have paid their debt to society and need a chance to enter the workforce.

Speakers at the 2009 Day on the Hill will include people with criminal records, public officials, community leaders, and impacted youth.

The groups are asking for some controversial legislation, including voting rights for felons and reunified families maintaining welfare benefits.
