Erase Your Criminal History and Get a Fresh Start for Justice

It’s time to wipe the slate clean. Social justice, equity, and a fair shot at building a future matter in Connecticut. That’s why we’ve passed the Clean Slate bill for old and low-level criminal convictions. We also passed the Cannabis erasure laws to help wipe away criminal histories now that adult-use Cannabis is legal.

Your future doesn’t have to be limited because of mistakes made years or even decades ago.

Clean Slate Connecticut
