Fresh Start: Sealing Criminal Records, Expanding Opportunities

For decades, a single non-violent conviction often meant a life sentence as convicted felon. It led to denials of employment and housing, an inability to hunt or even become a scout leader. On January 1, 2018, a new law went into effect greatly expanding the ability for people previously convicted of nonviolent, low-level offenses to seal the public record of those offenses and get a fresh start.  This workshop will explain how the new law works and who it can help. Participants will also have the opportunity to consult individually with volunteer attorneys following the presentation. 

Registration is limited to the first 50 to sign up, so dont wait!  

Bring the kids! During the presentation, we will have childcare, games and activities for with the “Legal Beagle Book Club.” Sign up the kids at this link.
