OpenDoors is one of the only nonprofits in the state that exists to support formerly incarcerated people, or returning citizens, in the incredibly difficult tasks of securing suitable employment and livable housing. Second Chance Night will be a community-oriented event in which the cause of these people can be heard out. Everyone makes mistakes, and those who are formerly incarcerated have served their sentence---they deserve a second chance.
Second Chance Night will raise awareness to the community, specifically local business owners, about how returning citizens can be supported in their pursuit of reconciliation with their communities through employment. There will be a screening of the brief documentary made in-house by OpenDoors, followed by a panel discussion and Q+A with experts in the field of criminal justice and rehabilitation.
Please come to Second Chance Night to support OpenDoors and their motivated clients in their pursuit of a purpose-filled life! Everyone deserves a second chance."
