Clothes For A Chance at a Glance
Clothes For A Chance is a grassroots program that is putting clothes in the hands of under served populations in the City of Milwaukee and hopefully one day nationally. We are seeking clothing and monetary donations for our current goal of clothing 85 men that are returning home from prison this January, 2019.
Most people aren't aware of it but the State of Wisconsin has the largest disparity in the union when it comes to the incarceration of black people.
I'm not here to play the blame game, I am just trying to lessen the burden of someone who could use a hand. These is a story behind how I came to this point in my life for a full description of how we got here my thoughts on the topic.
If you've read the full description, watched the video or heard some good word of mouth we hope you will donate to our mission. Here is a donation button. If you're more comfortable with a GoFundMe then just scroll down.
If anyone would like to keep score, so far I have 5 bags of clothes and $270.00 thank you to everyone who contributed!

Becky From The Alma Center Explains What The Men Need
I have been grinding with the Alma Center, Inc. for the smart re-entry program. I just wanted to share the clothes that I was burning through with people who needed them. We always talk about mass incarceration being a problem but we rarely do anything other than talk about it. Helping out with clothes is one thing. Then I learned there was so much more to what we need to help with and what it takes to help people transitioning home from prison. Here is Becky from the Alma Center to talk about how they are helping reduce gun violence and the revolving door of the for profit prsion system. I ran out of donations for laundry and have so many more clothes to wash.
