What you can do to fight for progress this week (February 7)

As you’ve probably heard, many businesses in Colorado are having a hard time finding enough workers.

At the same time, a pool of qualified talent is waiting for their chance to get back in the game.

Did you know that one in three Coloradans have some type of criminal record? Old convictions for minor infractions can create lifelong obstacles to employment, housing, and education. Right now thousands of Coloradans are unemployed and under-employed because of a debt they repaid to society long ago.

That’s why we’re proud to be part of the coalition supporting the Clean Slate legislation just introduced in the Colorado legislature. Clean Slate creates a process for automatically sealing records for those who are already eligible, have completed their sentence, and committed no further infractions.

Sealing old court records for those who have completed their obligations and want to rejoin the economy makes sense for everyone. Lack of economic opportunity lies at the heart of rising crime and recidivism.

Click here to help our friends at Healthier Colorado pass Senate Bill 22-099, the Clean Slate Act by contacting your lawmakers right now and urging them to support automatic sealing of eligible court records.

Thanks for your help passing this important legislation! Here are a few more ways to fight for progress for the week of February 7, 2022:

Amir Locke Black History Month Voting Rights Rally ACLU PeoplePower

Join us in banding together during the second weekend of Black History Month to ensure voting rights are a guarantee in a historically racist system.

We will voice our concerns about this, as well as other issues we face such as money in politics, climate, and student loan debt, in front of the Capitol, on the sidewalk near the west side (Civic Park) entrance. Tell as many people as possible about this!

When: Saturday, February 12 at 10:00am
