California law allows for certain criminal convictions to be “dismissed on the record,” and outlines a process for applying for a certificate of rehabilitation or pardon. The California Clean Slate campaign works with legal advocates, service providers, and community activists to expand access to these services.
We are also campaigning to expand the number of offenses eligible for dismissal, to centralize the dismissal process, and we recently succeeded in eliminating fees for juvenile record-sealing. We have held All of Us or None Clean Slate Summits in Sacramento, Los Angeles, Alameda County, Orange County, East Palo Alto/San Mateo County, Hayward, San Diego, Long Beach, and Riverside.
LSPC does not provide direct legal services and cannot represent individuals in clearing their record.
