Expungement of criminal records and records of evictions is widely available under Oregon Law. Yet it is likely that fewer than 2% of eligible people follow through! In part, this is because lawyers typically charge upwards of thousands of dollars per case. But by pooling our recovery community's resources and our network, we can make expungement accessible for everyone.
Records of a person’s criminal history prevent people from full citizenship long after their sentences have been served. Background checks are a standard part of job and housing applications, limiting people with criminal records to “felony-friendly” forms of employment - temporary work performed in dangerous conditions or under the table - and housing - exploiting our people in expensive rentals in unsafe areas. Even in places with “Ban the Box” laws, employers and housing providers can still legally deny applications based on an un-expunged record.
Clearing a person’s criminal record is called “expungement” in Oregon. Charges which meet complex requirements are eligible for expungement. The market rate to hire an expungement lawyer is over $1,000 per case. So even for people who are eligible under Oregon law, practical barriers effectively restrict expungement to those who can afford it.
