New Leaf Illinois is a statewide, state-funded initiative made up of 20 non-profit organizations throughout Illinois who provide free legal representation or legal information to people who want their cannabis convictions off their record.
We know the legal system can seem intimidating. New Leaf is here to help each step of the way.
New Leaf Illinois is committed to equal justice for all those who were previously arrested or convicted for cannabis use, production and sale. The expungement process is one step toward repairing the damage caused by the war on drugs which unfairly impacted people of color and the economically disenfranchised. New Leaf Illinois is a project of the Illinois Equal Justice Foundation.
