In order to break the cycle of recidivism we need to be pushing for more ban the Box laws because the big problem is once you go to prison you are felon you have to check a box that almost guarantees you are not going to get the chances and opportunities someone who has not been in your shoes will get I have seen this firsthand I went to prison did three years and this was 9 years ago and it is still hard for me to find gainful employment and I don't mean a job that pays little to nothing I mean gainful employment a living wage but without pushing four more states banning the Box it will always be the same thing a revolving door system but through the grace of God I have found if I do the next right thing for the next right reason things always work out I have always stayed working sometimes two jobs to keep my family fed and to keep a roof over our house it is not easy for people in our shoes and with understanding that yes we made we are accepting personal responsibility for our actions and we are wanting to move on with our lives but with this hanging over our head how can we well I'll tell you how we can by pushing for ban the Box laws how involved is jumpstart Ministries in that because yes it is important for somebody fresh on the street to have a place to stay to have fellowship and to stay positive but it's also important for them to have gainful employment or purpose something that makes them feel accomplished and without all that the only thing that happens is they hit that revolving door again now I broke the recidivism and I did it myself I did not have anyone to lean on I could not get any help from Voc Rehab like that's promised when you are released from prison I had to do everything myself but I wasn't alone I had God on my side so please jumpstart Ministry if you are not involved in the movement of removing the Box please get involved because there are people out here who are trying to stay employed be productive members of society and share their testimonies with other people so they don't have to go through what we went through once again please get involved with the movement without a sense of purpose a person does not stand a chance ...my name is Bob and thanks for letting me share
