The Legal Action Center wishes to share its deepest gratitude to the New York Bar Foundation for its recent award of $5,000 to our organization. The funds will allow LAC to create Part 2 of our web-based tool series “Helping New Yorkers Overcome Criminal Record Barriers.” These free and easy-to-use legal education videos in English and Spanish help New Yorkers with criminal records improve their chances of finding employment, housing and other life necessities so they can build and rebuild lives of dignity and self-sufficiency.
Part 1 of the series is already accessible via our website. It helps individuals understand what Certificates of Relief and Good Conduct are and who is eligible. Part 2 will explain how to apply for this type of proof of rehabilitation. We thank the New York Bar Foundation for its generous and ongoing support.
