  • March 2, 2015 - REDEEM Legal Service Clinic. 
    VLJ is honored that Senator Booker put his trust in us and chose VLJ and a VLJ expungement clinic at which to announce his proposed reentry legislation, the Record Expungement Designed to Enhance Employment Act (the REDEEM Act).  The Act is designed to help break the current cycle of rearrest and reentry that makes our communities less safe, costs taxpayers billions of dollars each year and denies deserving citizens the chance to become productive members of society.  After Senator Booker introduced his legislation, VLJ’s reentry attorney, Karen Robinson, presented a tutorial to a standing room only crowd including dignitaries, community groups and clients seeking expungements . After the seminar, VLJ volunteer attorneys from McCarter & English and Gibbons met one on one with clients, providing counsel and advice and expungement assistance. 

    VLJ is enormously grateful to Senator Booker for initiating this important legislation and for putting the spotlight on those who currently face enormous obstacles to bettering their lives, supporting their families, and successfully reentering their communities.
