Criminal Justice Update: Restoring Dignity through Education
September 10 at 8:00 p.m. EDT | Conference Call
On September 10, 2019, join José Woss, FCNL’s legislative manager for Criminal Justice, for a special briefing. Learn about upcoming opportunities to restore dignity and opportunity to people who are incarcerated, and actions you can take to advance political change.
The U.S. Senate is considering a large, comprehensive bill to reauthorize education programs—the Higher Education Act or HEA. The legislation includes a policy dealing with Pell Grants, which are currently banned from prisons. We have an opportunity to lift that ban and better serve people who are incarcerated.
Lifting the ban on Pell Grants in HEA is about restoring dignity through opportunity. Please register to join us for a nationwide call on September 10t at 8:00 p.m.
