TELL YOUR STORY

Were you charged unaffordable fees, costs and taxes because of an arrest or criminal conviction? Turn your experience into action and join the fight to end criminal administrative fees! Young people leaving the criminal justice system are often charged thousands of dollars in fees. But because most people who are charged these fees are low-income and trying to put their lives back together after a conviction, they simply cannot afford to pay them. To make matters worse, these fees disproportionately saddle people of color and women with overwhelming debt. These fees force struggling families to take money away from necessities and discourage re-entering people from seeking formal employment out of fear of having their wages garnished, bank accounts levied, or tax refunds intercepted.
