Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby, introduced legislation to remove the question about convictions from employment applications of companies doing business in Baltimore.  By collaborating with other Reentry advocates and programs, CSA, Inc. helped the Bill come out of Committee and be passed by the City Council.  Former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake signed the bill into law at the Mayor's Office of Employment Development Reentry Center in Mondawmin Mall.  

********************************

This Year's Legislative Lobby Effort

 
This year CSA's role in the role in the lobbying effort will again be a collaborative effort with other organizations and individuals.

We work with concerned organizations, programs and citizens to ensure the Maryland General Assembly gets a clear and unbiased understanding of the needs and demands of the reentry community as it relates to the discrimination, the collateral consequences and the 'Perpetual Punishment' caused by criminal background checks.


Specifically CSA, Inc. will advocate for legislation that will:

1. Reform the Maryland Pardon Process.
 
2. Allow the Shielding or Expunging of certain Felonies based upon the age of the disposition and NOT the type of offense.


*Clean Slate America, Inc. will support proposed legislation that includes relief for Felons.
For an understanding of our position see the report referenced by the Department of Justice
