Our Mission.


What if I told you there were over 6 million people convicted of felonies in the U.S.? How would you feel if you knew over 50% of these offenses were non-violent crimes with a huge percentage consisting of drug offenses? Would you think it just or reasonable to sentence these people to a life of exile after there time has been served? Or would you support helping them get back on their feet?

Think long and hard about these questions. As you do, realize these are people just like everyone else - husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, children, and siblings - and they have a tremendous amount to offer to the world. Today, we have over 20 billion hours of wasted potential every year from unnecessarily ostracizing these people from a dignified existence and the pursuit of happiness.

We were founded on one simple belief - criminal punishment should begin and end with time served. We believe lifelong disenfranchisement is neither just nor acceptable. The suffering of the millions must end! Once time has been served, people should be able to regain their dignity and gracefully re-enter society.

Our mission is to make that happen!
