What is Shattering the Shackles?
Shattering the Shackles of Collateral Consequences: Exploring Moral Principles and Economic Innovations to Restore Rights and Opportunity will examine the destructive effect that a vast network of penalties, debarments, and disabilities that arise from a criminal conviction has on the millions who have contact with the criminal justice system. It will also explore the disparate impact that these consequences have on communities of color. At the same time, the Summit will highlight the ground-breaking work that is helping people break free from these shackles, and provide a roadmap for national reform.
