Expunge.io helps people expunge juvenile arrest records
Every year thousands of juvenile arrests in Illinois are eligible to be expunged, but most are never actually removed. This summer the Mikva Challenge’s Juvenile Justice Council worked with Chicago’s civic tech community to create a website to change that. It’s called Expunge.io, and it walks users through the often confusing process of expunging a juvenile record. Last week the project won a new grant to expand the site. We're joined by Juvenile Justice Council Director, Chris Rudd, developer Cathy Deng and Korynna Lopez, the Mikva student who came up with the idea for the app.
