One thought on “Rally for SB942 at Juneteenth Parade”
I’m really excited about this cause having known many families and friends of my family. Along with family members who have been incarcerated since I was a child or in my teens. When they were released their own family members sometimes shunned them adding to the stigma and the sting of the burden of being an ex-con; the very term leaves a sour taste in my mouth. It dehumanizes people and reduces them to a stereotype all too often used against such parolees or recently released members of our society who deserve the second chance at winning.
