Repairing the Road to Redemption | Time Done

Repairing the Road to Redemption

The Alliance for Safety and Justice is excited to launch the Time Done campaign to raise awareness around the legal barriers that people living with convictions face. 

Today, an estimated 70 million people in the U.S. are living with a current or old criminal conviction. This means that long after they’ve successfully completed their sentence, nearly 1 in 5 people continue to face restrictions on jobs, housing, education and other supports that are key to family stability and economic security. 

What We’re Doing

California

Following the launch of #TimeDone California in October 2018, we have waged a statewide campaign to educate the public about the barriers facing millions of Californians. Now we’re fighting to pass critical legislation that would restore the pathway to redemption for so many of us. Join us by contacting your state lawmakers today.

Take Action

Florida 

The Alliance for Safety and Justice proudly stands with the Florida Rights Restoration Committee and was an early executive committee member of the Floridians for a Fair Democracy campaign behind Amendment 4. Together we helped 1.4 million Floridians with a past felony conviction regain eligibility to vote.

NATIONAL #TIMEDONE DAY

May 30, 2020

In its second year, #TimeDone Day will bring together thousands of people across the nation for a virtual event. The event will unite #TimeDone members, people living with past convictions and their families, and supporters, in community to announce and advance efforts that help people access jobs, housing and other necessities for safety, stability and success. With themes of hope, forward direction and connectivity, it will highlight how federal and state policies must ensure people living with past convictions are part of the plan to protect communities from COVID and advance the economic recovery.
