Description: The Greater Baltimore Committee established in 2016 the Coalition for a Second Chance, a group of experts from the public and private sectors charged with examining barriers to employment for those returning to society from a period of incarceration, as well as other policy issues tied to reentry to these individuals, often referred to as returning citizens.

The Coalition has published a report with recommendations for improving job prospects for returning citizens and ensuring their success after leaving incarceration, as well as a Quick Guide to help employers understand the business case for hiring returning citizens.

Membership: Membership in the Coalition for a Second Chance is open to all GBC members.
