How Chambers Participate in the Clean Slate Initiative

1 in 3 Americans have some type of criminal record, and there are more than 46,000 collateral consequences that impact people with conviction histories that create hurdles to certain career paths. Additionally, many people who have criminal histories find themselves stripped of certain rights and locked out of opportunities for housing, education, employment, social services, and other necessities. The Clean Slate Initiative is a movement to empower states to automate the complex and challenging record clearing process for those individuals eligible for expungement under current state law. During this webinar, hear how chambers are working to eliminate barriers to employment and opportunity.
