Criminal Justice Section: Re-entry & Collateral Consequences Committee

Criminal Justice Section:
Re-entry & Collateral Consequences Committee


Who We Are



Focuses on the barriers that offenders face in re-entering society after receiving a criminal conviction. Reviews obstacles that offenders face in the area of employment, housing, educational opportunities, and other areas, which impact their ability to become a law-abiding citizen. Examine ways to assist in neutralizing the effects of criminal convictions on persons trying to rebuild their lives.


Goals

1. Membership development: encourage member-driven projects, advocacy;

2. Mobilize advocacy around the housing resolution already passed by the ABA;

3. Mobilize advocacy around legislation addressing collateral consequences affecting employment; and

4. Liaise with other Criminal Justice Section committees and other ABA committees for development of future goals.
