See criteria below.

What is Shattering the Shackles?  

Shattering the Shackles of Collateral Consequences: Exploring Moral Principles and Economic Innovations to Restore Rights and Opportunity will examine the destructive effect that a vast network of penalties, debarments, and disabilities that arise from a criminal conviction has on the millions who have contact with the criminal justice system. It will also explore the disparate impact that these consequences have on communities of color. At the same time, the Summit will highlight the ground-breaking work that is helping people break free from these shackles, and provide a roadmap for national reform.

Watch the video below to see NACDL President-Elect Drew Findling and Honorary Chair Mike Epps discussing Shattering the Shackles of Collateral Consequences.

 

Collateral Consequences and Restoration of Rights Resources  

In May 2014, NACDL released a comprehensive report entitled Collateral Damage: America’s Failure to Forgive or Forget in the War on Crime. The report examined the devastating impact collateral consequences have had on those with an arrest or conviction.
