The Project

Removing barriers to employment for unemployed or underemployed individuals who are actively seeking to join the labor market.

Many individuals face barriers to employment based on mistakes they made years ago or clerical errors in their criminal records. We are working to remove these barriers and assist individuals seeking to re-enter the workforce by expunging minor criminal records, correcting errors in criminal records, restoring driver’s licenses and occupational licenses, and providing any other relevant legal remedies needed.
