Collateral Consequences of Incarceration: The Clean Slate Act and Beyond (CLE)

January 25 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

This CLE will discuss the recently signed Clean Slate Act, which will expand opportunities for over 2.3 million New Yorkers with conviction records. With this new law, New York has joined eleven other states in passing legislation that will automatically seal certain convictions and allow people to overcome systemic barriers to jobs, housing, and education. However, this Act does not cover all those with conviction records. We will discuss what barriers remain for those who are formerly incarcerated and who was not included with the Clean Slate Act and how this can impact clients in a variety of areas of the legal system.

Darren Breeden, Community Intake Advocate, Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem—Civil Defense Practice
