We wanted to share the following excellent youth-created film about the importance and value of juvenile expungement reform. Special thanks to the Community TV Network for posting this film. Look out for our upcoming curriculum to help youth and adults understand the importance and value of clearing juvenile criminal records. We look forward to making use of this film.
