Tonight on New Abolitionists Radio we will be joined by Mr. Corwin Scott and Ms. Valarie C. Clark of The Evergreen Empowerment Group (EEG) which is a non-profit organization-pioneering program that contributes to the community by assisting low-income citizens, military, various social classes and ethnicities with resource information of the legal system. According to them, "American citizens are being held back from pursuing the American dream because of criminal convictions. These convictions prevent some citizens from obtaining gainful employment, safe and affordable housing for their families, and perpetuate social stigmas that follow convicts." In the news,
