April is almost over, but it’s not too late to talk about Second Chance Month. Even a body as divided as the US Senate unanimously declared April as Second Chance Month, a month to focus on ways to help people pick up their lives again after a period of incarceration.

This week we will talk to Craig DeRoche, Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Public Policy for Prison Fellowship. Prison Fellowship is promoting April as Second Chance Month, and Craig will talk to us about his organization, the legacy of its founder Chuck Colson, and how the United States can solve its mass incarceration problem.
