We are more than our old records.

The Alliance for Safety and Justice launched the Time Done campaign to raise awareness around the legal barriers that people living with convictions face.

Today, an estimated 70 million people in the U.S. are living with a current or old criminal conviction. This means that long after they’ve successfully completed their sentence, nearly 1 in 5 people continue to face restrictions on jobs, housing, education and other supports that are key to family stability and economic security. 

 

What We’re Doing

California

We have announced #SB731 with Sen. Maria Elena Durazo because we believe people are more than an old legal record. No one who’s done their time and paid their debt should be forced into permanent second-class citizenship. 

It’s time to #SunsetConvictions! #TimeDone has waged a statewide campaign to educate the public about the barriers facing millions of Californians. Now we’re fighting to pass critical legislation that would restore the pathway to redemption for so many of us.  Stay up-to-date by texting sunsets to 97779.

HOW HAVE YOU BEEN HELD BACK BY A CONVICTION RECORD?

We believe that all people who’ve done their time and earned a path to redemption should be able to successfully rejoin society—and that’s what California’s proposed law #SB731 is seeking to do. Are you, or someone you love, a person who has been held back because of an old conviction on your record? Please consider recording a short video here to be used by Californians for Safety and Justice and other organizations in support of the bill.

NATIONAL #TIMEDONE DAY

June 2021

In its third year, #TimeDone Day will bring together thousands of people across the nation for a powerful virtual event. The event will unite #TimeDone members, people living with past convictions and their families, and supporters, all in community to announce and advance efforts that help people access jobs, housing and other necessities for safety, stability and success. 

With themes of hope, forward direction and connectivity, it will highlight how federal and state policies must ensure people living with past convictions are part of the plan to protect communities from COVID and advance the economic recovery.
