EXPO is in Detroit for the 2022 Annual Clean Slate Convening
Introducing clean slate:
A new bipartisan policy model that uses technology to automatically clear criminal records if a person stays crime-free.
A criminal record should not be a life sentence to poverty. We believe that people who have served their time deserve a fair shot at a better future. To better achieve equity, especially across race and income, we must transform a justice system that continues to create unnecessary barriers to employment, education, and housing.
The Clean Slate Initiative works with state partners to help provide people with a fresh start.
Clean Slate is about the American Dream—the belief that if you work hard, you should be able to get ahead. Those with criminal records—who have made mistakes, paid their debt to society, and now want to contribute—deserve that chance, too.
The Clean Slate Initiative is led by Executive Director, Sheena Meade and governed by an Advisory Board and Steering Committee composed of issue area experts, directly-impacted people, and a bipartisan collection of national organizations that provide in-kind policy, technical, and advocacy assistance to our state and local partners.
