The best way to get people’s attention is to affect their wallets and pocketbooks!
Ex-felons have much more power than they think, if they harness and organize their power!
According to the research, there are approximately 2.8 million ex-felons currently locked up in jails and prisons in the U. African American make up approximately 47% of the inmate population in the U. yet they account for only 12.7 % of the population in the U. African Americans are disproportionately represented in every state in the U. This means that their percentage in the prison population is greater than their percentage in the state’s general population.
People get ill everyday but they somehow recover and are able to seek opportunity and they are made whole.Today Ex-felons are visible in every facet of life.America and Americans are becoming more tolerant of ex-felons in sports, media, education, military and areas in which felons benefit organizations but corporate America and political entities continue to maintain a strict stance against ex-felons.When people see you they see your conviction because many folks in America will never let you forget that you committed a crime.Today we are beginning to witness a paradigm shift in how ex-felons are treated.
