Second Chance for Georgia Campaign – Policy Agenda


After the successful passage of SB 288 and SB 105, GJP will continue to advocate for law and policies that remove barriers to reentry so that Georgians who have past involvement in the criminal justice system can access economic opportunity, support their families, and contribute to their communities.

Specifically, we will focus on these areas in 2022:

    • Eliminating Poverty-Based Driver’s License Suspensions
    • Removing Barriers to Occupational Licensing
    • Expanding Criminal Record Restriction and Sealing (expungement)

If you have had your driver’s license suspended for inability to pay a court fine, or have been denied an occupational license due to your criminal record, we would like to hear from you as we clarify our specific policy solutions to these problems. Contact Ann Colloton at Ann@GJP.org.
