What can you do about your criminal history? Georgia Justice Project

GJP Presents: What Can You Do About Your Criminal History?

Georgia Justice Project is partnering with the Georgia Department of Community Supervision to provide free presentations to individuals with a criminal record as well as service providers in 8 counties across the state. Our first session was held on Thursday, August 30th, and had over 210 people in attendance. The presentations focus on understanding criminal records in Georgia, barriers they may create to employment and housing, as well as what individuals can do to alleviate collateral consequences of their criminal record.
 
There will be two different presentations at each location: 
  • What Can You Do About Your Criminal History? A presentation for service providers and people who have a criminal history
  • A Community Conversation: The Future of Reentry in Georgia

Note: If you bring a recent copy of your criminal history from the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) to the "What Can You Do About Your Criminal History" presentation, an attorney or paralegal will review it and answer questions about your record after the presentation.
