Introducing the New Restoration of Rights Project

July 3, 2017 – The Collateral Consequences Resource Center and its partner organizations announced the launch of the newly expanded and fully updated Restoration of Rights Project. The Restoration of Rights Project is an online resource that offers state-by-state analyses of the law and practice in each U.S. jurisdiction relating to restoration of rights and status following arrest or conviction. Jurisdictional “profiles” cover areas such as loss and restoration of civil rights and firearms rights, judicial and executive mechanisms for avoiding or mitigating collateral consequences, and provisions addressing non-discrimination in employment and licensing. Each jurisdiction’s information is separately summarized for quick reference.
