RSVP Here for Oakland Access to Justice Days!

R&R is launching ACCESS TO JUSTICE DAYS at our downtown Oakland office for people with arrest and conviction records to meet one-on-one with a member of our legal team. This event is FREE.

From 3-6 pm, stop by the R&R office to ask our legal team members any reentry-related legal questions or questions about how your record impacts your life and rights. We will also be providing free know-your-rights resources including R&R’s Reentry Planning Toolkit and "My Education, My Freedom" Toolkit.

Examples of questions we can help provide legal advice on include:
 parole and probation restrictions; visiting and reunifying with family members; cleaning up your record; learning about your employment and housing rights; occupational license issues; reinstating a Driver's License; getting basic forms of ID; immigration rights; and voting rights.
