2021 Day of Advocacy
Tuesday, May 18th, 2021
After the major success of our 2019 Lobby Day, we’re coming back in 2021 to continue pushing for policies that reduce barriers to successful reentry and provide increased access to opportunities for people directly impacted by the criminal legal system.
During the 2021 Virtual Day of Advocacy, we will have the opportunity to:
Enjoy music from a live DJ and performances from those directly impacted by the criminal legal system
Hear from activists and community members from across the state about the work being done for reentry and demands we’re making of elected officials
Discuss a policy agenda that centers the needs of people directly impacted by the criminal legal system
Share and hear stories about our experiences in our voices
Attend breakout sessions to connect with activists, community members and elected officials
The New Hanover County chapter of the NC Second Chance Alliance, at LINC, Inc., is part of a statewide alliance of impacted people and families, service providers like LINC, advocates, community leaders, and compassionate citizens who have gathered their resources and support to address the cause and impact of criminal records and the ensuing barriers to successful reentry. Our goal is to leverage public education, mobilization, and local and state policy reform to reduce recidivism and empower impacted men and women for successful reentry.
The Second Chance Alliance, and the network of chapters, support restoring opportunities for prosperous citizenship for North Carolinians with criminal records. Our 2019-2020 legislative agenda includes automatic expunctions and expanded eligibility, adoption of a fair chance public hiring and licensing policies, increased resources for reentry services, and expansion of local reentry councils.
