April is Second Chance Month

FailSafe-ERA is organizing several events for Second Chance Month in April 2024. This year, we are continuing our partnership with Germanna and the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC), for our Annual Right Road Reentry Resource Fair for returning citizens (formerly incarcerated). It will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at Germanna Community College, and each of the participants will walk away with a toolbox for success -

Also, in partnership with Germanna, on April 26, 2024, we will host our Annual PGI (Preventing Generations of Incarceration) Conference. The theme is “Community Centered Solutions”, featuring Germanna’s president, Dr. Janet Gullickson, delivering our morning keynote -   


The end of our community efforts culminates in our 2nd Chance Hall of Change Annual Fundraising Gala and Scholarship Program on April 27, 2024, at the Fredericksburg Expo and Conference Center, where we will also debut the documentary of our inaugural Hall of Change recipients and release of their anthology entitled “The Life They Lived: An Anthology from Agents of Change” -  

We invite you to become a Sponsor and supporter of our Annual Gala, to join other individuals and organizations in our community who believe in second chances, public safety, and prevention services; thereby strengthening community partnerships. Community sponsors are one of the primary sources of funding for this event and will help ensure its success.
