How human trafficking happens in the United States.

DC Vacatur Toolkit: Removing Criminal Records for Trafficking Survivors

With critical funding provided by DC’s Office of Victims Services and Justice Grants (OVSJG) and in partnership with McGuireWoods, Amara completed work on an extensive toolkit to guide legal service providers in requesting vacatur and expungement relief for trafficking survivors. This work represents Amara’s continued efforts to educate the community about the availability of vacatur in DC, clarifying how to determine a client’s eligibility for vacatur, expungement, or sealing, and explaining the process for obtaining vacatur, expungement, or sealing.
