The Collateral Consequences Resource Center (CCRC) is a non-profit organization established in 2014 to promote public discussion of the collateral consequences of conviction, the legal restrictions and social stigma that burden people with a criminal record long after their court-imposed sentence has been served.
It provides news and commentary about this dynamic area of the law, practice and advocacy resources, and information about how to obtain relief from collateral consequences in different jurisdictions. The Center has drafted reports on new legislative developments, and participated in court cases challenging specific collateral consequences.
The CCRC has also created an up-to-date catalogue for jurisdicitions across the country on where they stand regarding the restoration of rights for people with a criminal record. See the Restoration of Rights Project here!
