6 Words about the Value of Expunging Juvenile Criminal Records…

Posted: September 13, 2010 in Uncategorized

When the online storytelling magazine SMITH asked its readers to submit six-word memoirs, the results were fascinating, moving, and sometimes very funny.  The results were published in a bestselling book called “Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure Writers.”

This mother’s day, the ONE campaign asked its supporters to write six-words reflecting on Why Moms Matter.

Inspired by these efforts, Project NIA’s UN-marked campaign invites interested individuals to submit six-words to convey either the effect/impact of having a juvenile criminal record or to illustrate the importance of clearing a juvenile criminal record.

An example would be: “Fifteen years later still can’t work.”

Another could be: “Arrested at 16; shoplifting; never recovered.”

So be creative and add your six-words to the mix.  We hope to use the best submissions to create an awareness raising poster as part of the UN-marked campaign.

Please send your 6 words to us at unmarkedcampaign@gmail.com or
