“CORI files provide lists of convictions and arrests (event if the arrest did not result in a conviction). Even misdemeanors stay on your record indefinitely. CORI laws keep thousands of people from obtaining employment, housing, loans, insurance, and college education...It is unjust for people to go to jail, serve their time, and come back into society with no possibility of getting a job.”
Donna also speaks about her involvement in the Roxbury community, from volunteering for the homeless to being involved with the T Rider’s Union. See her article for more info about the campaign for CORI reform.
