Having a criminal conviction is harmful on many levels, from obtaining gainful employment to housing opportunities. Often, these criminal convictions hurt Black and Hispanic communities who have been victimized by systemic racism in the criminal justice system. Sahaba Initiative is partnering with local Inland Empire attorneys to provide a pro bono Criminal Record Expungement Clinic.
The goal is to provide post-conviction relief to those suffering the many negative consequences of having a criminal record. Through possible expungement and sealing of arrest records, we hope to assist in providing members of our community with a fresh start.
