Sean Pelzer age 48, died suddenly on June 21, 2018

Sean had been severely discriminated against as an adult because of his criminal record.  He has lost jobs, job possibilities and housing opportunities – all because of widespread checks on CORI.  He was determined that no one else will suffer as he had.  His passion made him one of the foremost advocates for CORI reform.  Working days, nights, weekends, Sean traveled the Commonwealth training people with CORI, lawyers and law students on CORI regulations and sealing records.  Sean has been at the forefront of organizing on re-entry, criminal justice reform and racial discrimination issues for 8 years, working with the ACLU, Jobs with Justice and UMN.
