Expungement Clinic at EPL

Expungement ClinicOn Saturday, March 19, 2016, the Moran Center hosted an Expungement Clinic at the Evanston Public Library to educate the public on the importance and process of clearing criminal records. Too often, a criminal record, even for a single offense that occurred long ago, can make securing a job or obtaining an occupational or professional license nearly impossible. Attendees learned about the process to seal or expunge criminal records, as well as other avenues to overcome the barriers of a criminal record when applying for jobs, housing or educational opportunities. The Expungement Clinic included an educational presentation followed by an opportunity for attendees to meet with Moran Center staff to begin the record-clearing process.
