For the 70 million people living with a criminal record in the U.S., the penalties of a conviction last far beyond the sentence. The #WORKINGfuture campaign is committed to eliminating the devastating barriers to health, housing, and work while restoring basic human dignity to all.
There are at least 48,000 laws or statutes that restrict and diminish the lives and redemptive potential of people with a record.
Led by JustLeadershipUSA, and in partnership with directly impacted communities, the #WORKINGfuture campaign seeks to eliminate the barriers to employment that people with records are facing. The #WORKINGfuture campaign builds power within and among impacted communities to challenge legislative barriers that exclude people from the future they deserve, and transform the narrative about the lifelong impacts of collateral consequences on people, families, and communities.
