Remove barriers to employment, housing, and opportunity

People with past criminal records and convictions face lifetime barriers to employment, housing, education, driver’s licenses, and other pathways to opportunity. These barriers make it difficult for returning citizens to achieve what we all seek: to support ourselves and our families, lead fulfilling lives, and positively contribute to our communities. Removing obstacles to opportunity will not only allow returning citizens to move forward with their lives, but also improve public safety and Florida’s economy.
