One Less Barrier: Removing Legal Obstacles for Returning Citizens

October 06, 2022

Join Florida Justice Center Executive Director Jonathan Bleiweiss, Director of Legal Services Alex Saiz, Esq., and Stanford University’s Noel Vest at Reentry Summit Palm Beach County 2022 for the panel discussion “One Less Barrier: Removing legal obstacles for returning citizens.”

Did you know there are over 1,100 consequences of a felony conviction in Florida? Recent legislative changes have created paths to professional licensure for formerly incarcerated people. While these processes are nuanced and guided by specific laws and policies, they are not out of reach for most people.

We invite you to learn, in simple terms, some of the legal processes that help formerly incarcerated people get a second chance at success and how you can be an advocate for those affected by the criminal justice system.

Topics include overviews on:

  • Clemency
  • Voting rights
  • Banning the box for employment and higher education
  • Coalition building
