Database Established: Legal Advocacy Resources for Human Trafficking Victims

Share this:

Freedom Network member organization Advocating Opportunity has aligned with various expert organizations in justice and law to form the national Vacatur & Expungement Database.  Advocating Opportunity provides legal services and whole person advocacy for human trafficking victims.

The database provides a centralized resource for attorneys and advocates assisting trafficking victims seeking to vacate criminal convictions for crimes they were forced to commit.

In the past eight years, more than half of the states in the U.S. have adopted laws allowing trafficking victims to vacate or expunge convictions arising from trafficking. The Vacatur & Expungement Database includes cases, articles, redacted court documents, redacted briefs, and news reports pertaining to these laws.

The database encourages submission of relevant materials, including redacted court documents and briefs, to the database.  Please contact Alexandra Levy at to submit materials or with any questions.
