"I can't sell real estate, I can't sell insurance, I can't be a bingo caller, I can't be a dog walker…and the list goes on and on and on.” - Jay Jordan - Executive Director for Californians for Safety and Justice

The Ambassadors Circle (with Red Earth LA) was fortunate to sit down with folks who have been negatively impacted by the over 40,000 legal barriers faced by 70 million Americans with a record or conviction even after serving their time and paying their debts.

We heard brave stories about the shame that sometimes covers them and their families, challenges getting suitable housing or employment and feeling the effects of a criminal justice system gone awry. #TimeDone is an effort to remove legal barriers that don't make sense and don't provide opportunities for individuals to successfully integrate back into our communities.
