About the Clean Slate Project
SCSJ’s Clean Slate Project addresses the collateral consequences of having a criminal record, including barriers to employment, housing, and occupational licenses. We provide direct legal services and we support organizing efforts to ensure that people impacted by the criminal justice system are leading the movement for reform.
Clinics and Free Legal Services
We partner with All of Us or None NC and local grassroots organizations to host criminal record relief clinics and community empowerment trainings throughout North Carolina. Through January of 2018, we have held 16 clinics in Central and Eastern North Carolina and filed petitions in 59 counties.
Because we offer legal services as a way to support our organizers in building a base of people who participate in their own change, individuals seeking legal help must either come to one of our clinics or connect with All of Us Or None NC at one of their events before speaking with a lawyer. We are planning a schedule of upcoming events where you can learn more about local organizing efforts and register for legal help. If you cannot attend any of these events, please check back to this site frequently for updates. You must attend one of these events in order to talk with a lawyer.
