Florida has more than 1.5 million convicted felons. These ex-offenders face many challenges: completing education or vocational training; getting state licenses and good jobs; and even obtaining approval to volunteer at schools, youth sports programs and for non-profit activities. The purpose of Second Chances: Florida Pardons, Restoration of Civil Rights, Gun Rights and More, is to inspire and empower the reader by explaining the types of executive clemency available for convicted felons -- including full and conditional pardons, restoration of civil rights (RCR), firearm authority and more -- which can be granted by the four-member Florida Board of Executive Clemency comprised of the governor and members of the Florida Cabinet.
