From Chicago: Gov Rauner is joined by Rep LaShawn Ford (D) a Director of the Safe Haven Foundation, a released Illinois prisoner, and others, as they talk about the importance of helping those recently released from prison, to get their personal documents without fees, so that will help them transition back into society.

The ability of recently released prisoners to have access and to afford getting copies of their identification papers, is one of the major hurdles in their being able to find employment.
