Criminal Record Reclassification

Event Date and Time

On November 4, 2014, California voters passed Proposition 47, a law that changed certain low-level crimes from potential felonies to misdemeanors.

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.

One in three people are banned from employment due to a criminal past that includes a felony. Are you, a family member, friend or neighbor ready for a 2nd chance?

The record change process (also known as reclassification) is for individuals with a qualifying low-level, nonviolent felony on their criminal record. Prop. 47 record change clinics and resource fairs are happening across the state.

Visit for a list of events.
