Why is this important?

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’re invited every candidate to answer a brief questionnaire about second chance issues so that you can get to know them better!  Once we have their responses we’ll publish them on our website in October.

The Lord rescued Edith in 2002, changing her life forever. Up until that time, Edith had been addicted to crack, sex trafficked, arrested, lost custody of her children, experienced many drug treatment programs, and spent 13 years in federal prison. Edith understands outreach, social services, homelessness, and relapse groups. She went to school and earned an associate’s degree in Theology. She also became a licensed cosmetology instructor. She taught cosmetology while ministering one on one while doing hair. In January of 2017, the Lord called her to the homeless community.
