The Walk to Freedom: The Fight for Criminal Record Reform
cori.jpgA coalition of Massachusetts organizations have organized a four-day walk from Worcester to Boston to mobilize for CORI reform, a criminal record checking system that advocates say have kept many workers, mostly people of color, out of jobs. The walk began Sunday in Worcester City Hall and is expected to arrive at Bunker Community College by Thursday around 10:30 am.
