Expunge Colorado is a women-BIPOC-led nonprofit dedicated to restoring justice and impacting lives and communities through education and access to record sealing legal services. Since 2018, our team has hosted 5 annual record sealing clinics serving over 500+ Coloradans sealing over 100+ eligible cases.

Recently, Expunge Colorado is recognized as the Community Organization of the year by the Colorado Center for Law and Policy. We are proud to be the only nonprofit organization in Colorado with the sole purpose of providing access to record sealing in the state. Hosting annual clinics year after year demonstrates the overwhelming need for resources, education and access to record sealing services. What started as a volunteer-led effort has evolved into a fully functioning non-profit organization on a mission to educate and empower individuals negatively affected by a criminal record. In addition to hosting record sealing clinics we have also trained 80 lawyers/law students, partnered with 20+ partner organizations, contributed to a record sealing white paper with the state of Colorado and helped craft language for Colorado Clean Slate Legislation, SB22-099, passed earlier this year.

Currently, our nonprofit is at a pivotal intersection of growth and sustainability. We are looking for grants and key funding to support our ongoing work. We are raising funds to hire a justice impacted intern to help with operations, purchase refurbished computers and printers for our clinics and to create public-facing educational content to empower others to navigate the process and understand the law. We also have the dream of finding some donated office space.

Why Expunge Colorado's record sealing work matters? 

A criminal record has devastating lifelong consequences that can affect an individual and their families for multiple generations. 

Per Clean Slate Colorado data, there are over 1.3 Million Coloradans with a record eligible for record sealing within state law. Unfortunately only 5% successfully get their record(s) sealed because the process is complex and costly. Aside from Expunge Colorado's annual clinic, we have additional goals to create educational campaigns to empower others to help navigate the process and understand the law. Here's additional incarceration statistics in Colorado:
