Racial Justice Series: The High Civil Cost of Criminal Records

Our popular Racial Justice Series returns with "The High Civil Cost of Criminal Records," a panel discussion on the unmitigated and long-term consequences of a criminal record. The United States has a long history of disparate rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration of people of color. But the long-term effects go well beyond the period of incarceration. The civil consequences of a criminal record have significant impacts on the individual and their families long after their contact with the criminal system. The ability to get a job, including obtaining occupational licenses; obtain housing; get or keep custody of their children; take out a loan; go to school, especially through student loans; or vote are just some of the collateral consequences. Join us to discuss these issues and more, what is being done in DC to lessen or eliminate these consequences, and how DC attorneys can help. Leading our discussion is our expert panel, including: Amanda Korber, Director of the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia Reentry Project Alexis Applegate, Senior Attorney Advisor, Office of General Counsel, D.C. Office of Human Rights Patrice Sulton, Executive Director, DC Justice Lab Stephon Woods, Government Attorney & Washington Council of Lawyers Board Member (moderator) This engaging evening of learning is free for Washington Council of Lawyers members and members of co-sponsoring organizations, and $10 for the general public. Get ready to better understand the high cost and life-long impacts of criminal records. Thank you to the LGBTQ+ Bar Association of DC; the South Asian Bar Association of Washington D.C. (SABA-DC); and the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, DC (TLADC) for co-sponsoring this program.
