Second Chance Workshop set for Friday

BELLE GLADE — The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition and the Players Coalition are hosting a local Second Chance Workshop at Glades Central High School, 1001 S.W. Ave. M. in Belle Glade, on Friday, April 13, at 5 p.m. The purpose of the event is to help returning citizens, people who have past felony convictions, with employment assistance, occupational licenses, rights restoration and more. The workshop will run from 5 to 8 p.m.

“We are excited that Anquan Boldin will be in his hometown on Friday to help empower people and strengthen our local communities,” said Desmond Meade, president of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. “We hope that returning citizens, their families and those who want a more inclusive community will help spread the word out about this important event.”

The purpose of the workshop is to offer services to “returning citizens” (individuals with past felony convictions) in Belle Glade and surrounding areas. Those services include direction on sealing/expungement of court records or criminal charges, restoration of rights, employment assistance and occupational license applications.
