Expungement Training

Expungements and Pardons – Two Part Webinar Series 

The explosion of mass criminalization has burdened more than 1.4 million people in Wisconsin with criminal records. Collateral consequences of convictions are disproportionately concentrated by race, gender, and poverty status, especially affecting black men; as a result, criminal records may be a significant contributor to racial disparities in employment and other socioeconomic outcomes. These studies suggest that more than 90% of people who might qualify for expungement in Wisconsin and nationwide do not access it. 

Join us and learn how to help low-income clients overcome this barrier to education and employment at pro bono clinics.
