Our Founder Announced as a NARSOL conference Keynote Speaker!

June 23, 2024. Sunday keynote- "Where's the Mercy? Balancing Justice and Common Sense" by Waleisah Wilson-Menefee

Our founder and Board President, Waleisah Wilson, will be one of the key note speakers at this year's NARSOL (Nat'l Association for Rational Sex Offense Laws) conference in Atlanta (June 20-23). Her speech "Where's the Mercy: Balancing Justice & Common Sense" will engage the thoughts of those in attendance of topics such as grace, mercy, forgiveness and common sense when engaging with, providing services to and integrating with men, women and children living on the sex off***er registry and addressing the barbaric, oppressive and counterproductive laws and policies that cause more harm to communities than keep us safe.

Our Mission

The mission of NewLife-Second Chance Outreach, Inc. is to end mass incarceration by equipping, empowering, and restoring sociallyeconomically and civically disadvantaged Georgians impacted by an arrest, conviction or incarceration by providing services, resources, advocacy and grassroots organizing that supports the replacing of carceral systems of oppression with person and community centered solutions and access to resources that support freedom, inclusiveness, equity, and economic sustainability.  

Our Vision

Collateral consequences are socially, economically, and civically oppressive. Therefore, it is our vision that Georgians impacted by an arrest, conviction, or incarceration, (including immigrant detention) are not subjected to lifelong stigmas, discrimination, surveillance, community supervision, and oppression but rather are able to have freedom to safety, self-autonomy, civil liberties, economic equity and access to the resources they need to become healthy, thriving, self-sufficient and self-sustaining members of their communities. 

This vision includes the inclusivity and recognition of the voices, experiences, and leadership of women and girls in a male-dominated space as effective contributors to a transformed criminal justice system and oppressive policies that target, criminalize, and cause harm to women and girls.

Advocate

Criminal Justice reform work can't be done without the support of allies and supporters who use their voice, influence, power and financial resources to bring awareness to the social injustices and barriers that justice involved people encounter, the importance of giving second chances in employment and housing and to hold policymakers, employers and housing providers accountable for their discriminatory policies that exclude people impacted by criminal convictions.
