At Code for America we want to clear all eligible records, and we believe that the only just and equitable path is for government to make this happen automatically. We believe automatic record clearance is a service that government can and should provide to people living with convictions, free of charge and as soon as they become eligible.

The recommendations in this report were developed based on our experience helping states design and implement automatic record clearance policies so that all eligible people can receive much-needed relief.
