Project Spotlight: Code for Boston is partnering with Citizens for Juvenile Justice to help develop a tool to make it easier for people to discover if they are eligible to expunge their criminal records, and to make it easier to engage in that process, under a statute recently passed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The group is currently engaging in discovery research and is looking for connections to the re-entry community for user interviews. The group also welcomes new members that want to help with discovery research. The best way to connect is to join #clean-slate on the Code for Boston Slack team (invite link: https://communityinviter.com/apps/cfb-public/code-for-boston-slack-invite) and share a brief message introducing yourself and your interest in the project.
