Thank you for all your help with the Second Chance Tucson Community Forum on April 20, 2015, at the Fox Theatre. Your informative and inspiring presentation was the keystone to a very successful event. It has been astounding how positive the response has been from those who attended the Forum. People are energized to help Second Chance Tucson support those making the challenging transition from prison to jail.
I am very hopeful you will have the opportunity to work with jail and corrections people in Arizona. Your message of personal responsibility, goal setting, and living transparently is a critical lesson for those of us on both sides of the walls. I am impressed with how much thought and work you have put into this. Corrections and the community have a critical role in rehabilitation of prisoners, so your ideas are important to all of us.
Thank you again for your outstanding presentation. It was the essential part of an incredibly successful event. I hope tow ork with you again soon.
Very truly yours,
Charles R. Pyle
