PRESIDENT DIAZ AND THE BRONX DEFENDERS HOST A CLINIC TO PROCESS "CERTIFICA
TES OF GOOD CONDUCT" FOR BRONXITES
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and The Bronx Defenders will sponsor a re-entry clinic to assist ex-offenders to obtain Certificates of Relief from Disabilities and Certificates of Good Conduct. These documents will help ex-offenders who have traditionally faced barriers to employment and housing because of a criminal record.
Certificates of Relief from Disability and Certificate of Good Conduct are crucial tools created by the legislature. They facilitate successful reintegration after a conviction by helping people overcome legal barriers to employment, housing, and civic participation. Unfortunately, they are vastly underutilized and only a small fraction of the people who could benefit from the certificates applies and receives them each year.
The clinic will help hundreds of Bronxites to apply for the certificates and to spread to word about its benefits.
