I Did the Time is a group of formerly arrested or incarcerated individuals, advocates, and criminal justice professionals who strive to create a society where people with arrest and conviction records, who have served their time and focused their efforts on rehabilitation, are able to re-enter society with support and respect from our families and communities.
We envision a world where the formerly arrested or incarcerated have the opportunity to fully recover and reintegrate into society with safe and stable housing and meaningful occupations. We hope to educate the public to reduce stigma associated with past offenses by engaging those who represent and support us in political action.
Our democracy only works when we register as voters and engage with our elected officials to create system change. As part of the voting populace we have the civil right to ask our elected officials to serve our needs
