The Project

Kiara helped remove barriers to employment for people with criminal records and provide expungement outreach and direct legal services to Mississippi residents in all of the state’s 82 counties.

This program uses the state’s expungement statutes to clear reentering individuals’ records to help them to gain employment, obtain promotions, or get into schools that will give them an opportunity to pursue higher wages.
