The American Bar Association Survivor Reentry Project offers FREE trainings that will explore the impact of criminal records on trafficking survivors’ ability to move forward in their lives. Each training is intended for a specific audience.
Facilitators will take participants through survivors’ experience in the criminal legal system. The training will also explore Kansas law on vacating convictions and clearing criminal records for survivors, the legal steps required to vacate a conviction, and resources for obtaining criminal histories. Participants will learn about the Survivor Reentry Project’s resources for advocates and survivors and become connected to a national network of attorneys and non-lawyer advocates working on criminal legal issues for survivors.
