From: John Brown Lives!
The research is clear: Education reduces recidivism, improves job prospects for individuals once they leave prison and strengthens communities. Since 1995, though, New York has blocked incarcerated individuals from receiving this aid. Our goal is to restore it. You can help – sign this petition today!
Next month, John Brown Lives! will go to Albany with other members of Education from the Inside Out (EIO) to urge Gov. Cuomo to restore Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) aid to jailed students. Show him you want all New Yorkers to have the power to transform their lives through education.
