In its second year, #TimeDone Day will bring together thousands of people across the nation for a virtual event on Saturday, May 30. The event will highlight the need to remove the unnecessary barriers to stability for people living with old criminal convictions or records, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath.
[En su segundo año, #TimeDone Day (Día del Tiempo Cumplido) reunirá a miles de personas en todo el país, para un evento virtual, que resaltará la necesidad de eliminar las barreras innecesarias, a la estabilidad de las personas que viven con antiguas condenas o registros penales, especialmente durante la pandemiade COVID-19.]
There will be special performances by music artists, exclusive interviews with legendary figures, exciting announcements, and more.
The event will unite #TimeDone members, people living with past convictions and their families, and supporters, in community to announce and advance efforts that help people access jobs, housing and other necessities for safety, stability and success. With themes of hope, forward direction and connectivity, it will highlight how federal and state policies must ensure people living with past convictions are part of the plan to protect communities from COVID and advance the economic recovery.
We are calling for:
• The federal government and every state to remove restrictions on housing and employment for people living with a past conviction or record.
• The removal of restrictions on federal stimulus package support for small businesses led by people with a past conviction or record.
• States to automatically clear the old criminal records of people who have done their time and are attempting to move forward in their lives.
The #TimeDone campaign aims to remove the nearly 50,000 legal restrictions to jobs, housing and other opportunities that 70 million Americans living with a past conviction or record face long after exiting the justice system.
