An estimated 400,000 Georgians will be arrested for a criminal offense this year, according to the Georgia Justice Project. Some of these people will never be convicted, but their arrest record could make it hard for them to get a job, rent an apartment, get into school, etc.
The Georgia Justice Project is hosting a forum called “Is There A Real Second Chance in Georgia?” on October 9. It’s a day long event to help people get their records expunged and/or corrected.
Religious leaders and elected officials, including Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, will be there. And there will be workshops explaining how to remove an arrest record in Georgia.

The event is free, but space is limited. To register, contact Marissa McCall Dodson by phone at (404) 827-0027 ext. 259 or (678) 791-6540 or by email at marissa@GJP.org
