Task Force on Restoration of Rights and Status after Conviction (Survey)

NACDL (National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers) is in the midst of a major study that will lead to a report issued in 2014 on the countless ways in which a person’s rights, ability to work, and the like, are affected by a criminal conviction. As part of this effort, NACDL needs your help. If you are interested in sharing your story of lost rights and privileges resulting from a plea or guilty verdict, please complete survey. Before we would take your story public, someone on our staff will contact you to ensure that we have the necessary and correct details to make your story a part of this important effort to shed light on this serious problem.

I took the survey. Don’t know if it’ll help. But I hope it’ll help.

I’m going to do this. Thank you for putting it up.
