The Project

Upon their release from prison, individuals with criminal convictions are saddled with significant civil disabilities. These disabilities limit employment and housing prospects, ultimately serving as instruments of social exclusion and encouraging recidivism. To address these barriers to re-entry, C. Daniel appealed denials of occupational licenses based on unrelated criminal histories, hosted forums on the rights of individuals with convictions, and advocated for greater community supports for reentry.

I believe that a person is more than the worst thing they've ever done. Individuals with criminal convictions and their communities are best served by true opportunities for community inclusion.
