This webinar explores the new “Clean Slate” model of mass sealing minor conviction and non-conviction records by automated computer queries, instead of by individual petitions. Panelists discuss the development of this model in Pennsylvania, including its bipartisan support and its technological underpinnings. This webinar is intended for policymakers and advocates interested in the potential for automated sealing in their states.
