The CORI Initiative

Thousands of members of the Greater Boston community carry the burden of a criminal record.  This Criminal Offender Record Information, or "CORI" is maintained by the Commonwealth and can bar an otherwise eligible individual from employment, housing, and financial services and is often used to discriminate.  Many of these individuals have a CORI that qualifies for sealing, but they need help in facilitating the process.

The Center for Law and Social Responsibility CORI Initiative connects student volunteers with qualified clients to complete the CORI sealing process.  Students gain practical experience while providing clients with a new lease on life.  Please contact the CORI Initiative for more information.
