Advocacy Exchange - Clean Slate: How the Left, Right, and Football Players Passed an Innovative Criminal-Records Law
The Clearinghouse Community, part of the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, will be holding the November 2018 episode of the Advocacy Exchange webcast, entitled Clean Slate: How the Left, Right, and Football Players Passed an Innovative Criminal-Records Law, on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm Eastern. The Advocacy Exchange is a monthly conversation hosted by the Clearinghouse Community with advocates advancing change.
Earlier this year, Pennsylvania passed a “Clean Slate” law that made it the first state to adopt automated sealing of some criminal records. The effort brought together Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, chambers of commerce, district attorneys, the faith community—and NFL players. How did it happen—and can Clean Slate be replicated in other states?
Join the November 2018 episode of the Advocacy Exchange, for a conversation with Sharon Dietrich, Litigation Director at Community Legal Services of Philadelphia, and Rebecca Vallas, Vice President of the Poverty to Prosperity Program at the Center for American Progress. They will discuss how these strange bedfellows came together in Pennsylvania and how to replicate the Clean Slate success in other states.
