UFCW Promotes Prop 47 Clinics, Restoration of Rights

myprop47b

With the passage of Proposition 47, certain low-level, nonviolent felonies can now be changed to misdemeanors on old criminal records. If you or someone you know has a prior criminal record with a felony record for any of the following crimes, you may qualify to remove the felony from your record and change it to a misdemeanor*:

  • Simple drug possession
  • Petty theft under 950 dollars
  • Shoplifting under 950 dollars
  • Forging or writing a bad check under 950 dollars
  • Receipt of stolen property under 950 dollars

UFCW 648 has partnered with Californians for Safety & Justice, San Francisco Labor Council, San Francisco Immigrant Justice Center and the San Francisco Hiring Hall, to put together a clinic to help Union and community members begin the process to restore their rights.  Prop. 47 is the largest opportunity in U.S. history for people to change past felony convictions on their records. As many as 1 million Californians may be eligible.  To begin the process please see attached flyer and event information.

If you or a family member is interested in attending the Prop 47 record change clinic in San Francisco. Please join us.
