  • Carrie Cole, The Bail Project Louisville
  • Erin George, Clean Slate Initiative
  • Tachana Marc, Florida Policy Institute
  • Dominique Martin, New Virginia Majority


Session Description

This session will bring together our Earn in the South partners to share their efforts and exchange strategies about how to lower barriers to employment and income raised by involvement in the criminal justice system. Participants will visit multiple stations in a science fair style where a host will facilitate dialogue regarding four different topics: criminal fines and fees; occupational licensing; expungement and sealing; and cash bail. Participants will have an opportunity to rotate to new stations to join the conversation about different topics. After four rotations, participants may go back to any station they like to continue their conversations and exchange contact information with other participants.
