The Get Cleared Campaign reduces recidivism by making work possible for formerly incarcerated individuals who are eligible to have their records expunged. They help their clients focus on developing skills that would increase their chances of securing living-wage jobs, as opposed to spending inordinate amounts of time navigating the court system in hopes of clearing their records. In so doing, they have engaged stakeholders to impact systems change in the State of Illinois, Cook County Circuit Court, City of Chicago and local communities to streamline the expungement process.
Join Host Valerie F. Leonard ; Rev. Elena Calloway, CEO of T.R.E.A.D. and Rev. Otis C. Monroe, CEO of the Monroe Foundation to hear updates on the Campaign.
