CIVIL RIGHTS RESTORATION
Sustainability – Primavera’s commitment to social and economic justice in the context of vibrant and revitalized neighborhoods has challenged the organization to integrate its neighborhood revitalization and community engagement activities. The strategy is to integrate community development and community engagement by strengthening resident leadership development and organizing across sectors with multiple community partners in targeted neighborhoods.
Restore Your Rights
Do you have trouble finding a job or apartment? Setting aside or vacating your convictions does not clear your record, but it can improve your chances when you are able to show the potential interviewer or employer that you have completed all the terms of your sentence and had a judge officially set it aside. A past conviction doesn’t bar you from participating in your community. You can restore your rights to vote, to sit on a jury, to run for political office and in some cases, you can get your convictions vacated or reclassified.
Restore your civil rights and restore your voice in our democratic process. As a voting constituent, you will not only have the power to make important choices about your future each and every Election Day, but you will also have more influence over those representing us at the local, state, and federal levels.
Call (520) 882-5383 x181 to find out about how you can go about restoring your rights.
You are eligible to restore your rights in Arizona if you meet the following criteria:
- You have Arizona or Federal Convictions.*
- You have fulfilled the conditions of your probation or sentence, including any period of parole/community supervision.
- If you were in prison, you have completed your sentence, including any period of parole/community supervision before you apply to restore your rights. This waiting period applies only to Civil Rights Restoration; applying to vacate a conviction has no additional waiting period.
*If your convictions are from out-of-state, please contact the Superior Court in the county of your conviction to find out how the rights restoration process works in that state.
Civil Rights Restoration Workshops
We co-host free civil rights restoration workshops several times a year for people with Arizona and federal convictions. Visit our Events Calendar for details.
