Helping Criminalized Women Reduce Vulnerability: Criminal Record Suspension Workshop for Community Workers

This 90-minute webinar for legal advocates, victim service workers and front-line service providers is presented by the Asian Women for Equality Society (AWCEP). The purpose of this session is to provide information on the Record Suspension application process with focus on assisting clients with completing the Measurable Benefit/Sustained Rehabilitation Form to improve chances of success.

Participants will gain understanding of the application process and the barriers that women deal with as a result of criminal convictions for prostitution and other poverty related convictions; dual arrests in domestic violence; and drug possession. We will discuss how a record suspension can help marginalized women access more options in life.

The webinar presenters are Grace Balbutin and Randall Cohn.
