A pathway for people to rebuild their lives

Who We Are

We are a coalition of community and advocacy organizations, business and faith leaders, directly impacted people and families dedicated to expanding access to criminal record sealing so that people with justice involvement can get housing, employment, education and more without facing a lifetime of discrimination.

Issues

Problem

The rules governing who has access to record sealing (aka nondisclosure) are complicated and exclusionary.

Problem
