    Survivors of human trafficking should be treated as victims, not criminals. Despite this, many victims of human trafficking have criminal convictions for prostitution or other crimes that traffickers forced them to commit. Some have criminal records in multiple states. For victims, these criminal records can pose a significant barrier to rebuilding their lives. Criminal convictions prevent trafficking victims from obtaining employment, housing, education, custody of their children, and even bank loans.

    In response, a growing number of states have passed vacatur laws that allow victims to petition to clear their records. In order for these laws to be effective, trafficking survivors must be aware that they are eligible for relief. And advocates must be trained to file for vacatur and expungement.

    During this program, participants will:
    • Receive a national overview of vacatur and expungement laws
    • Learn about the process of vacating criminal records in Maryland, New York, and Florida
    • Learn about the ABA's Survivor Reentry Project, led by the New York Legal Aid Society, which conducts national advocacy, training, and technical assistance on these issues
