This webinar highlighted successful efforts to scale back collateral consequences and challenge racial disparity in state sentencing policy, including state activity in New Jersey to address racial disparities, a recent victory in Missouri authorizing a “ban the box” fair chance hiring policy, and a coalition effort to expand expungement for certain felony convictions in Kentucky.
