Wiping the slate clean

The Clean Slate Practice at the East Bay Community Law Center in Berkeley aims to increase employment opportunities for individuals with prior convictions by dismissing their criminal records after they demonstrate rehabilitation. The group has urged lawmakers to ‘ban the box,’ or exclude inquiries on prior convictions, on employment applications. They argue that such remedies will make our communities safer by making it easier for people with criminal records to get jobs and re-enter mainstream society.
