Clear Your Record with Open Oakland

Clipboard with a paper that reads Criminal Background check

Do you have convictions? Or do you know someone who does?

Get help clearing your record with members of OpenOakland.

We'll use Code for America’s online application tool to help remove barriers to new jobs, housing, and educational opportunities. Clear My Record is a free, nonprofit, service for people with a criminal record in select California counties. It is easy to use, but we’ll be at the library to guide you through the process. 

Drop-in any time between 3 and 5 pm. No appointment required.

Know someone who might be interested but can’t make it? They can get started at this website:
