SB 2282: Removing Invisible Bars Act

In 2016, IMAN organizers and community members led the push to pass a crucial amendment to parole supervision law that eased some restrictions placed upon returning citizens. This piece of legislation—the Removing Invisible Bars Act—now allows returning citizens the right to associate with others on parole, or those who have been previously incarcerated, when attending religious services, visiting a family member, or simply serving their community.

If you were ever imprisoned within the Illinois Department of Corrections system, please share your parole experience with us. Your story will help us continue to campaign for more just policies affecting returning citizens, their families and our communities altogether.
