By automating the process of clearing criminal records, we’re making it easier for states to give people the fresh start they are legally entitled to after a conviction.
We do this by working with government to design automatic record clearance policies, and building the technology that puts them into action.
Criminal records are often lifelong barriers to employment, housing and education. But they don’t have to be. To date, our Clear My Record initiative will help approximately 1 million people across 20 states get a fresh start.
Google’s support will help us accelerate this impact. Google is also committing a pro-bono team of full-time Fellows who will help us better identify records that are eligible to be cleared, so we can help even more people get the life opportunities they need and deserve.
