Youth Speak Out about Juvenile Expungement (Redux)

Posted: October 25, 2011 in criminal record expungement, Youth Activism

A group of freshmen students at Power House Charter High School spent last school year learning about juvenile expungement. Many of the young people had direct knowledge of the impact that juvenile criminal records can have on a life based on their experiences with friends and family. This year, some of these same students will continue to partner with the Coalition for Juvenile Expungement Reform to push for the passage of a bill to reform this process.

One of the projects that the students completed last May was a series of 6 word poems about juvenile expungement. Here are two examples. One is from a student named Anthony:

The other is from Orlando:
