Join The Responsible Business Initiative for Justice and Small Business Majority to hear from small business leaders and national experts about how to expand the labor pool, support working Americans, and advance racial equity through the automatic sealing of old arrest and conviction records. 

Approximately 1 in 3 American adults has some form of criminal or arrest record. When people have their records sealed they see their wages increase by an average of 22% the next year. Clean Slate laws, which automatically seal these old records, have swept across the country and are now in effect in seven states, with more considering the policies every year. Clean Slate is a simple step to getting millions of Americans back to work and back on their feet, and has tremendous support among the business community, particularly as workforce shortages persist. Join this free webinar to hear from small business owners and policy experts about why these laws are critical for small business economic recovery and a strong labor pool.
