To do this, Pathway will build awareness about expungement’s value, recruit private-sector attorneys as volunteers to help people apply for expungements, and provide funds to help lower-income people with fees to get expungements.
Who benefits from these outcomes? All of us! By using expungement laws to knock down barriers to self-sufficiency, we will empower people who have already “done their time” to get good jobs, advance in careers, and access stable housing. Clean Slate Pathway leads to stronger, more prosperous West Michigan communities.
