GET TO KNOW YOUR LEGISLATORS
MNSCC’s Candidates Questionnaire is here to help you!
Every seat in the state’s legislature is up for election this November and the MNSCC is honored to help Minnesotans to connect with their legislators on second chance issues because we want you to use your voice and vote informed.
How It Works
We invited every candidate to answer a brief questionnaire about second chance issues so that you can get to know them better and these were their responses!
Candidates Commitment to the Second Chance Community
We asked all the candidates from various districts the following questions and these were their answers.
Will you support legislation that advances research-based solutions to reducing recidivism, including through reducing barriers to housing, employment, and/or civic engagement for formerly incarcerated people?
Fines and Fees
Do you support the American Bar Association’s position that criminal and traffic fines and fees should not exceed an individual’s ability to pay, and should be reduced or waived for people for whom payment could cause a substantial hardship?
Reducing Youth Incarceration
Will you support legislation that invests in community-based alternatives to youth incarceration?
