People who are returning home after incarceration, who have earned the chance to be part of society, should have a fair chance at reentering society and supporting themselves and their families. But Connecticut isn’t doing enough to help formerly incarcerated people to reenter society. Right now, formerly incarcerated people in Connecticut face more than 600 legal and policy barriers to finding jobs, housing, education, insurance, and more.
Connecticut will be safer, stronger, and fairer if our state protects people from being discriminated against solely based on their criminal record. H.B. 6921 is a bill that would prevent discrimination against people with a criminal record in areas of housing, employment, education, and other public services and accommodations.
Your legislators need to hear from you. Tell your state representative and state senator to support H.B. 6921.
