How your information will be used

NACDL appreciates the information you have provided us regarding collateral consequences you have experienced as a result of your conviction. We have conducted research around the country for over two years and are well aware of the sensitivities around having a conviction on one's record. While we cannot guarantee the use of any particular story, we will ensure that the information you provided is accurate as you have reported it. We will also contact you to let you know what segments of your information we intend to use in our report, website, press releases or any other materials associated with the project.

In submitting your information you agree to not hold NACDL liable for any actions that may be taken against you by any entity due to your conviction.

Again we thank you for participating in a process in which we hope will effectively address polices that negatively impact an individual's potential for reentering communities and society as a whole post-conviction.

I approve my information being used in NACDL's Post Conviction Study .  * 

If we use your story, can we include your actual name in the report? *
