The Project

Equal Justice Works Fellow Laura Holland worked with people who have been directly impacted by the criminal justice system to successfully re-enter society.

Individuals with criminal histories suffer discrimination in employment and housing, even when the person’s criminal past is limited or in the distant past. The project focuses on expungements and Certificate of Reliefs to help people get relief from their criminal records.
