Community Forum: Clean Slate Legislation
About 13,400 people are currently incarcerated in Connecticut. About 5,000 leave prison each year and return to our communities to rebuild their lives. Clean Slate Legislation would automatically expunge the criminal records of returning citizens who do not return to crime — 3 years after misdemeanors and 5 years after non-violent felonies. Clean Slate Fact Sheet.

The members of CONECT discover, research, analyze, and articulate a powerful moral voice to negotiate with business and government leaders regarding social, economic, and political issues that affect our member congregations.
