65 Million Men Can Be Denied Housing
Ex-Felons are getting divorced in record numbers and are being banned from their own ghettos due to the Crime Free Housing Ordinance operating in over 42 states.
Robert Rivera, like many ex-felons in America find out that even after being out for 10 years life becomes even more challenging.
Rivera attended school at Purdue and became a Certified Search Engine Optimizer and later obtained a Class A CDL license along with other certifications. He has found that he has been banned from gaining almost every occupational license needed to succeed. He has obtained over 85,000 signatures for Housing Rights for Ex-felons In America and hopes that our representatives will enforce laws that ensure that ex-felons have the right to live in their community.
“At our current incarceration rate, by 2025 over 100 million people in America will have a felony record. How can these men have sex lives, maintain a marriage or raise their kids, when our law markers have turned a blind eye to what is going on; knowing that it will without a shadow of a doubt send millions of more poor blacks, whites and latino men back into prison,” says Rivera.
Over 65 Million men in America have a felony on their record. Many men leave jails and prisons but later come out to find they are banned from living in their own ghettos due to the Crime Free Housing Initiative, which is operating in over 42 States.
“Ex-felons are being told by law makers they have no right to housing. What’s next? will ex-felons be told they will be denied access to buying food? The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) guarantees the right to housing and the right to a adequate standard of living,” states Rivera. “Everyone has the right to adequate housing without discrimination, and the States should take all necessary legislative, action to create more needed security for men considering that 1 out of every 4 men between the ages of 25-35 live with mom and pop. The extreme disrespect needs to stop.”
Rivera concludes: “Ex-felons are not responsible for 911. We all have the right to live here. Many people in America declare they are Christians and believe in forgiveness, but have been the last to show it to the millions that just need a chance.”
