WARRANT CLINICS

About Warrant Clinics

When community members have outstanding warrants and fines they can’t afford, this creates a barrier to employment, housing, voting and general well-being. In response, organizers in Louisiana have created a solution to this systematic issue.

 

The Warrant Clinic is a one day community court event to help residents obtain suspended drivers licenses due to warrants and attachments in traffic and municipal court

 

The video above shows the results of a warrant clinic in New Orleans. Take a look at how someone’s whole life can change for the better!

The Warrant Clinic

• helps people get suspended driver’s licenses back. 

• eliminates the fear of arrest. 

• provides more access to employment, housing and voting. 

• provides the city with funding which then allows the city to provide other 

   services for residents. 

• is a collaborative effort between community groups and judges who support a different vision for our community
