Sign the petition to support the Clean Slate Act
At AFP-MN, we’re committed to helping break barriers through a range of public policy reforms. This session, one of our key focuses is on the Clean Slate Act – HF1152.
By focusing on restorative solutions versus punitive we can provide those who served their time with better shot at a second chance.
The Clean Slate Act would provide an opportunity for some offenders the ability to participate in an automatic expungement process, following a certain period of time and with successful completion of a diversion program or stay of adjudication. This would allow nonviolent offenders who put in the time and effort working on improving themselves with the ability to have their records sealed to employers, colleges, and landlords.
With this policy change, we are respecting the dignity of all humans, reducing the recidivism rate, and removing barriers that have prevented individuals released from prison the ability to obtain a job, housing, and education.
To show your support for this crucial reform to our criminal justice system, please sign our petition today!
