Expunging Your Record: How-To Forum

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.
